Responding to rejections: a comparison

Nov 9th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

In the past couple of days, we sent out a lot of rejections, mainly to Issue 13 submissions. We use a form letter: we simply don’t have time to respond personally to all the submissions we get. However, rather than use a plan rejection (“Thanks for submitting, we’ve decided not to use it, best wishes”), […]



This is the story of how we begin to remember

Nov 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

It’s very hard to struggle back into a rhythm of work after being flung out of it for so long. To anyone who says 5 days isn’t a long time, I say: clearly you have never truly been in this kind of rhythm. But we are clawing our way back to production. We got back […]



I played around as well I was able

Oct 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

So much to do… so much to talk about… I’m barely awake after staying up past 1am to deal with the website issues and then actually get the new issue released. But there is much to blog about, so here I am again. First, congratulations to SirDayWalker for winning the Submission Guesstimate Contest! He guessed […]

Come on now, people, make a stand

Sep 8th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Sorry about the lack of updates. I’ve been busy with… well lots of things. Some CG-related, some not. All rejection letters have been sent, I’m pretty sure. If you haven’t heard from me regarding a submission to Issue 11, please email. Horror really was a good month for submissions; just slightly fewer than our best […]



I’m sinking in the quagmire and I’m losing all control

Sep 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

…ok not really. Sometimes it feels like that though. What a busy couple of days! Sorry about the lack of posts, but it’s been pretty crazy. A short refresher: 1. Issue 10: Child Fiction is out! The reaction has been very positive. A lot of people have been drawn to the brilliant cover art by […]



Come inside this digital domain

Aug 31st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Tomorrow is the LAST day to get your SFF+Horror submissions in! So many little-yet-important things accomplished today: – Kept up with reading Issue 11 submissions – Created new CG ads for Project Wonderful (some with new art) to start running on Tuesday the 1st – submitted those ads ahead of time (so I’m not scrambling […]



Busted me for disturbin’ the almighty peace

Aug 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Just because I’ve been quiet doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on. In fact, we’ve been up until 1am the last few nights working. The results: today I finally heard back from the last writer, and with that last approval I was able to finalize all the content. I’d already gone ahead and finished as much […]



I blink and answer “Neon.”

Aug 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

I was up late last night getting the issue out, so I was exhausted and forgot to post. This morning I posted separately about Issue 9’s content. So yesterday… oye. Well we got a bunch of stories at the last minute, like usual… even a couple within the last hour. Overall we eclipsed our previous […]



Seize the moment, try to freeze it and own it

Jul 29th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

We are caught up on reading again. It wasn’t easy, as the past two days have brought a slew of submissions. We’re past our highest previous submissions total by about 12% already! And the end of the month usually brings a small flood of last-minute submissions. We love it, keep them coming! Kay, by the […]
