A little bit of a hodgepodge this week…
Pressing Matters: Week of November 4-8, 2013
- Just sent out a contract for a new YA sci-fi project. News soon!
- Sent out rewrite request on a sequel to a much-beloved C&G novel…you’ll just have to wait to find out which!
- Looking at revisions for another possible acquisition…a really nifty fantasy project.
- Edits on Sword continue apace…
- Grave has an ARC layout and is shipping out to reviewers as we speak.
- We’re starting to talk to cover artists for Mixed Feelings! Eeee, cover art is such fun!
Reviews, Promotions, and Buzz
- Infinity Key pre-orders are closed, and Chrysoula has a LOT of stories to write now. Don’t worry, though – if you missed the pre-order, you can still pick up the book on Tuesday!
- Susan Jane Bigelow has been recruited into the upcoming War Stories anthology! Can’t wait to read her contribution!
- Sadly, Cody, the Candlemark & Gleam Editorial Parrot, passed away on Wednesday, October 30, at the age of 35 (we think). He will be desperately missed.
- Still working on accounting and royalties, and having ongoing software troubles. This is getting ridiculous.
- Mjolnir smash! (and yes, Mastermind Kate really did name her tournament croquet mallet Mjolnir. We’re not sure which is spookier, the name or the fact that she has a tournament croquet mallet…)
- Shipping out tons and tons of pre-orders…and more coming soon. It’s like a hobo convention exploded around here, what with all the boxes!
- Find out where books REALLY come from…
- This is amazing, and more than a little crazy. I’m entranced by the amount of dedication that went into all of it…
- We’re considering a new tangented project at C&G…news to come if we turn out to be insane enough to try it.
- Fanboy Comics just released a new graphic novel…about angels and fighting crime. Yeah, okay, that’s awesome.
- Watch this. Just do it.
- This is the best bunny of all time.
