…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

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 […]



So many winds that blow

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

We are all caught up on reading. We’ll be reading new stories as they come in over the next couple of days. Kay and I put our heads together for a number of things today. We set out several more genres in the order we want to do them – we try to have a […]

A quick note on swear words, because I’ve been asked a few times but I haven’t addressed it here: We don’t object to submissions with swear words. But there has to be a legitimate rationale for any swear, a reason that word was chosen for that point in the story. Swearing for shock value is […]



Just remember that the last laugh is on you

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

No post yesterday because Kay and I were up until the wee hours, talking about ways to make CG better for all of you! Issue 11 is as prepped as I can make it at this point; the various templates are even filled in with as much info as we have now, and the internal […]



Looking for adventure of a new and different kind

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

I didn’t have quite as much time today to work on the magazine as I’d hoped; I had a blast spending time with my son instead. Having said that, I did get a few things done. Some of you may have read my earlier post in which I deconstructed a very bad query we received. […]



Open up the throttle and stir a little dust

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

As I mentioned in a post earlier, Issue 9’s cover art was featured in a post on BoingBoing. It drove a lot of traffic to the site, which was a nice surprise – we didn’t know about the post until it’d been up for about 4 hours. There were some interesting comments in response, some […]



No one knew the circumstance but they say that it happened pretty quick

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

Maybe this is going to be the norm, and I shouldn’t be surprised, but it has. the proof of Issue 10 has already been shipped. This morning I woke to find an email from Createspace, informing me that the cover image as submitted didn’t have enough “bleed” at the edge for printing. I thought that […]



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 […]
