Have you ever had that feeling? When there’s so much going on, you can’t prioritize correctly – it’s a breakdown on task triage. My week has been like that, except instead of a “crisis” feeling, it’s been strangely happy and manic as hell! Quite a wild ride. Especially after all the stress (good & bad) from the past few weeks, it feels pretty nice. I’m sure it takes a toll on my mental and physical health. It’ll be very little comfort if all the “good stress” kills me before the bad. Ha!
Well, it’s in that spirit of ‘happy triage’ that I tell you about a few things. Exciting things, for me – all of us, really.
First, both All Hope Lost and Corpus Pretereo are available from both Barnes and Noble –and– Amazon. And I’ve already sent all the snarky, passive-aggressive emails to the customer service reps that I could handle – so there’s a decent chance that all the terrible errors will get fixed. It’s the kind of thing I always took for granted in this kind of business; take the book, put it on the website, people can buy it. SO simple! Again, HA! Anyway, here are the links:
On a related note, we’re also trying to get people to review the books. So, ya know, if you or anyone you know might be inclined, please give ’em a nudge.
Second, we’re already gearing up for our next publishing cycle. We need long form fiction (novels, novellas, novellettes, and, uh… novellitas…?) as well as submissions for our next anthology. You can go to our main submissions page HERE and see the sweet details.
Third – and finally – we’re having a cover art contest for the next anthology! I know, that’s a great idea, right? All the details are currently on our main page, over THERE, so go check it out. The deadline for submissions is the first of December, so there is plenty of time.
And I’m out, for now. I gotta go find a way to let off some steam, or the next thundering ‘kaBOOM’ you hear will be my head. I don’t like it when my head goes all explodey. It’s messy. Anyway, next time I want to tell you a little story. See ya soon!
