Release Day # 8

Jul 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Not a complicated day today. Mainly it was reading, and monitoring the response to the new issue. Pretty good response, too! I did deal with a couple little errors that needed correcting – I left out a link to a contributor’s blog, for example, and had to add it in. Nothing major, though. The reading […]



Time for a proper update

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

Since my post last night was only about the release of Issue 8, Here’s a proper post about yesterday (6/30). First, to whomever went and tracked down the Flash Fiction poll AFTER the deadline, even though I’d already removed all links from the website, and placed about a dozen extra votes: that was low. Votes […]



Time keeps on slippin’

Jun 30th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

ONE DAY LEFT!!! Just one day left to submit your Alternate History stories! Just one day left to vote for your favorite Flash Fiction story! Today, we were utterly flabbergasted to discover that the proof copy of the Issue 8 print edition arrived! From submitting the files and requesting a proof to its arrival took […]



Restless in anticipation

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

First: Only TWO DAYS LEFT to get in your submissions for the Alternate History issue! Second: Only TWO DAYS LEFT to read and place your vote in the Flash Fiction Contest! I reached a point this evening where I couldn’t think of anything that I had left to do for Issue 8 that I could […]



My baby’s hooked on short works of fiction

Jun 28th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

I think – and I’m knocking wood as I type this – that we can consider ourselves “caught up” on Issue 8. Today I went from zero to finished with the .prc edition. I also went through the website page by page, found the pages that needed minor alterations on Release Day that I’d missed, […]



Keep moving forward

Jun 27th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

The pdf edition of Issue 8 is pretty much done. I got the entire thing reformatted to 8.5″ x 11″. But I realized that I hadn’t properly sized the cover to 8.5 x 11, so I couldn’t do the merging of the various pieces (I was at work). I’ll do the sizing over the weekend […]



The Fire’s In Their Eyes And Their Words Are Really Clear

Jun 26th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

RIP Michael Jackson. RIP Farrah Fawcett. The online, print and Kindle editions are now all complete. In fact, the print proof has already been shipped. Amazingly, it went from submission to approved for proof to ordering the proof to shipping the proof in just about seven hours. That is by FAR the fastest turnaround we’ve […]



Sounds to me like you’ve got rhythm to spare

Jun 25th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

First: today I finally got the last of the rejection letters out. Although I said so in the letters, I also want to apologize again to anyone reading here who had to wait this long. Our turnaround time is usually FAR faster than this; June hasn’t been kind to our schedule. We’re taking steps to […]



An end is in sight

Jun 24th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Not the end, obviously. There is no true end. But at least the completion of Issue 8 has appeared on the horizon. The Print, online and Kindle editions are essentially finished. Still waiting for one last biography, which is really ticking me off since I’ve emailed twice about it already. If I don’t have something […]
