Edits and covers and speaking, oh my!
Pressing Matters: Week of April 15-19, 2013
- Still in the process of wading through the slush pile. There’s a couple of promising mss, and Editrix Sarah demanded a full on one, while I’m looking at another. We’ll swap when we have notes, and figure out what to offer on in this batch!
- Continuing edits on Infinity Key by Chrysoula Tzavelas and II Crimsonstreak by Matt Adams. Adding in edits for Grave by Joan Frances Turner. ALL THE EDITS.
- Author copies of The Other Half of the Sky have been sent out, as have editor Athena’s copies!
- eBook issues with displaying The Other Half of the Sky in the Kobo app for iPad have been mostly ironed out. Oh, /> tags and spaces, why do you hate me so?
- Check it out: the cover of Blue Diamond Delivery by Anne E. Johnson has been revealed!
- Chris is making a new attempt at a cover for The Dominion, this time referencing a ton of old travel ephemera I found. Should be interesting…
- The mega-talented Brooke Stephenson is back on board for the cover of II Crimsonstreak – and her ideas are phenomenal. It’ll be another smashing cover!
Reviews, Promotions, and Buzz
- Library Journal has read and reviewed The Other Half of the Sky and loved it! They call it “fearless writing” and we couldn’t agree more.
- A Series of Ordinary Adventures author Stevie Carroll has been doing some research, and shares it in an amazing post on a woman who may have been the first female science-fiction author.
- Mark your calendars for May 11 – Justin Robinson just confirmed that he’ll be in Artist Alley at Long Beach Comic Con! Stop by and keep him company, lest he do something drastic like tap-dancing on his table…
- Are you in or near Philadelphia? Save the date for May 19 at 5pm: Anne E. Johnson will be doing a reading from Green Light Delivery at Head House Books!
- Royalties and accounting for this quarter finish up tomorrow, now that Amazon’s finally released March sales numbers. Now for the fun part – sending money to people!
- Mastermind Kate is speaking at the annual Independent Publishers of New England conference this weekend, with back-to-back panels on marketing strategy and “the digital landscape.” Here’s hoping the AV equipment works this year!
