Forget about your worries and your strife

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

I thought I was going to get burned out, having to read so much in such a short time. But I’m not, for 2 reasons. First, the quality of stories we got for the LGBTQ issue was exceptional – our shortlist was far larger, even percentage-wise, than usual. And second, we’re so damn excited that […]



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 […]

I like my rules, baby, etched in stone

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

We got back some of the edited content with comments, all of which were pretty reasonable. So I was able to take some of it and get it formatted and inserted into the document for the print edition. The new layout looks pretty kickass with actual text in it! I also worked on some more […]



Damned if I’ll yield at the end of the chase

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

It was too late to post last night when I finally had the chance, although in my sleep-deprived state the results would have been pretty entertaining. Editing happened! We got a couple pieces of issue 12 edited and they’re off to their writers for consideration. Only one more left to do, I think. As soon […]



Makes me wanna turn around and face me

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

Today was primarily a reading day. We had a mild uptick in submissions, which we hope means we’re hitting that rush we’ve been half-expecting. We’ve already read a few that we’re extremely pleased with, and barring some huge surprise will almost certainly be going in. That’s a good feeling, knowing there’s already a few that […]



I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed

Sep 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

One of the two declarations in this post’s title is a lie. Today was one of those days where I got a lot done, but the todo list didn’t seem to get any shorter. I hate those days… no matter how much you accomplish you feel like a lazy bum. The most important thing I […]



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 […]



399,993 to 7

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

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 […]



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. […]
