In ‘Email Versus Dim Sum’ Everybody Wins

May 19th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

I’ve had the privilege and delight of interviewing two very talented people in the past week, and I wanted to share a little with you all about that process and experience. Sometimes I go searching for someone to interview for Crossed Genres, and sometimes I look for someone to write an article on a topic […]



Administrative Training Activate!

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

Today for Crossed Genres, I emailed an inventor and a newsperson in the hopes that they will participate in interviews for future issues of Crossed Genres. Both are brilliant at what they do, and I admire them greatly. And once again I had to turn off the SQUEE-ing fangirl in my head so I could […]

Speculative Genetics and a Portrait of a Dynamic Writer

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

So the date is set for our Speculative Genetics interview. I’m dying to see how this goes. Reply in the comments with your questions about genetics in Fantasy and SciFi – some of them may find their way into the interview. Inspire me! I have also lined up another fun interview with a hardworking, talented […]



What do Your Jeans Say About Your SFF?

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

Nothing; jeans don’t talk! *eyeroll* Sorry. Bad joke. Over-used word-play. Moving on. Among the other things I did today, I’ve located someone who is probably the perfect person to interview for our Anthropomorphism issue.  She’s a geneticist, a trekkie, and she’s written a book that brings those two loves together.  Not to mention all the […]



To Squee or Not to Squee

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

Now that the next few covers are on their way, I have torn myself off the Hunt for Cover Artists and placed myself on the Hunt for Non-Fiction Contributors.  This poses a similar, but amplified set of desirable problems for me. We’ve had some excellent non-fiction contributions in the past (most recently Piers Anthony wrote […]



Where I Work

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

I’ve been busy, busy, busy.  Here’s a quick summary: Contacted a few potential non-fiction contributors, followed-up with several artists (we now have cover artists lined up through the penultimate month of our inaugural year, hooray!), began reading submissions for our Urban SFF issue in earnest…  And so on. I’ve also spent quite a lot of […]



Careful What You Wish For (it’s not just rain, it’s a FLOOD!)

Apr 20th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Got an email today from a third fabulous artist interested in doing the the cover for the same issue I already have two other artists interested in.  Yes, they’re apparently queueing up for that one…  I’ve asked two if they’d be willing to do other covers. We’ll see how it goes.  But still?  It was […]



It’s Raining, It’s Pouring! (Actually, the weather is perfect)

Apr 19th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

I have another of those ‘problems’ I love to have:  As of this evening, two new artists have accepted my invitations to do an upcoming cover for CG.  They are both perfect for the genre in question, and they both seem very excited about it.  Fortunately for me, one of them has a style that […]



Dealing With Disappointment

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

*sigh* Even editors get rejection notices in their inboxes from time to time.  Well, often, actually.  I do, anyway. See, the ‘trouble’ is my taste in art. I can spot a pro with just one glance at a thumbnail image on their DeviantArt gallery page.  Well, that’s what it seems like.  And lately I have […]
