I’ve been informed that contracts for Triangulation: End of the Rainbow have now been mailed out. It’s nice to get that off the to-do list.
We’ll turn our attention to line editing soon, with the idea of making sure authors get at least a couple weeks to review any changes. We’re happy with the stories we’ve selected and hope the community of readers will be too. Suggestions for reviewers, review blogs, etc. are welcomed. We’ll send copies to a good selection of reviewers to hopefully get the book some attention out there in the wild beyond.
On a personal note, my short flash piece, “Cycles” (500 words) is up at Everyday Fiction today. It’s getting rave reviews, but the stars rating is holding around 3.5 out of 5. This suggests to me that it’s one of those stories people either love or hate. I seem to be adept at writing those for some reason. I’m just glad it’s the lovers who are posting comments, not the haters, ’cause my poor l’il ego needs some strokes today.
Because? I got a rejection from Asimov’s yesterday. Sheila basically said the story was “nicely done” but didn’t quite work for her. She looks forward to my next.
I doubt she’d say that if she saw what I have “in stock” right now. A bunch of half-finished stories I keep putting down when I hit the hard spot. Gotta get that focus thing going again.
Those of you expecting contracts for Triangulation, be watching your mail in the next week. If you don’t have one in two weeks, shoot us an email. It could be we (i.e. I) put down a wrong address.
Happy writing and avid reading, everyone!
