Slushing from the Beach

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Or trying to, at least–the siren’s call of the breakers just over the dunes is mighty tempting. :) I’m here on the annual trip with my music buddies. We all met 10+ years ago through various bands and studio projects; now we hardly play anymore, but every fall we go to the beach to drink and sit around.

The premiere for my magazine went very well last week–a few technical glitches, but we worked around them. Reaction has been extremely positive so far, which is extremely gratifying–a nice initial validation of my vision.

I’m planning to head to Capclave for the day this Saturday, with a big sheaf of magazine flyers. There’s a panel on online magazine publishing that I could sit in the back of the room for and nod my head. :) But for now, I think I’ll succumb to that siren’s call of the waves.

Two Days Away….

My magazine Beneath Ceaseless Skies launches in less than two days. Holy crap. It’ll be awesome once it’s finally up and I can then get some sleep!

Still Here!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Sorry about the paucity of updates over the last month. I’m still here, slogging away. In the last month I’ve received three rejections from head editors at pro mags and written over 200 for my own magazine. I’ve rewritten one story of my own and sent about ten rewrite requests. My new fantasy mag Beneath Ceaseless Skies launches nine days from today, so in addition to all the regular slush reading, there’s the big final push to get tons of things ready.  So Issue #1 may be my next update for a while–look for it Thursday-week, Oct. 9.

Happily Swamped In Slush

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

I’ve been insanely busy these last three weeks, reading subs for Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I got 50 subs the first day, and it’s tailed down to 20 or so per day since then, but that’s still over 125 subs in the magazine’s Inbox. But some of them have been really good, so I’m really enjoying it. Now, off to read some more!
