This blog has become severely neglected recently. I’m very sorry for that – this season does create chaos. I’ll be so glad when it’s over. But I would anticipate updates staying sporadic until January. A few bullet points to summarize what’s been going on: The proof for Issue 14 has been shipped and is on […]



The extent to which you resist

Nov 21st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Well, since my post earlier today, a few more people have pitched in with contributions or purchases. Thank you! We’re still not quite where we need to be yet, but we’re getting closer! Please help us make our budget and not go broke! (And remember, there are only 9 days left to purchase a anthology […]



Why wait any longer for the world to begin

Nov 17th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Sorry for the lack of posts. I can say in all honesty that it’s because I have been busting my ass on CG. Yesterday I finalized the print, pdf, Kindle and prc editions of Issue 13. Who’s awesome? That’s right. Actually we have to wait for the proof of the print edition to arrive before […]



That’s not the reason that I came to land

Nov 13th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

The print edition of issue 13 isn’t quite finished. It turned out we were still waiting on an edit from a writer! Oops! Fortunately we have it now. I think we can wrap up the print edition tomorrow, which means we’ll be ordering the proof by Monday; that’s still in plenty of time. *KNOCK WOOD* […]



there’s some place that he’d rather be

Nov 10th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing for Issue 13 is done. Whew. Tough one this month – not because of the stories, which were actually quite clean, but because we got sick and fell out of the swing of things. And we had a few other things going on. Next I’ll be putting together the print edition. The cover is […]



Yesterday’s sunshine is faded

Oct 18th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Annoyingly, we’ve decided that we need to order a 3rd proof copy of the print edition. There are a few tiny problems that, if it was just one of them, we might leave it (as much as it would irk us), but together we can’t ignore them. Every one is just a little flaw in […]



And in a startled voice he says to what’s before his eyes

Oct 15th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

WOW so much to tell! First and foremost: the print edition of Issue 12 has been finalized! Today was another example of speediness by the printer: Submitted at 11:58 am, proof ordered at 3:26 pm, proof shipped at 4:46 pm. Less than 5 hours total. Brilliant. I gotta say: DAMN I am so pleased with […]



You’ve got a real type of thing going down

Oct 12th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Whew! What a weekend! The site was down for about 24 hours. This was due to some unforeseen (and still not completely explained) issues when moving the site to a new server. Our webguru Matt worked his butt off to get us up and running again. Thanks Matt! Let’s see. All editing for the LGBTQ […]



Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it

Oct 7th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing happened! We’re not finished, but progress was made. Hurrah! Today was Mad Communication Day. I must have sent a good 20-25 emails covering various subjects for the magazine. Mostly about Issue 12, although there were a few things about past and future issues as well. Kay also sent quite a few emails as she […]



Usually Kind To Smaller Man

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

Stats! Now that we’ve closed submissions on our first year of issues, I went and counted up our Fiction submission totals. I found some very interesting things about our Male/Female submission ratios. These numbers disregard submissions that weren’t ever under consideration – i.e. submissions that were too long/too short, or were withdrawn by the writer […]
