Reading, Reading, More Reading, and Contracts

Just a quick note that we’re still reading away.  Only about 100 stories have never been read; everything else has had at least one read-through.  As we mentioned earlier, every story gets a couple of chances (2 readers minimum) to make an impression.  So, our apologies for taking so long, but we want to give every story as much attention as possible.  Also, about a dozen or so stories are currently on HOLD because we think that with a bit of work they would be a good fit for the anthology.

For those lucky folks who have received your acceptance notices, please be patient as we hope to get preliminary contracts (and payment!) out by the end of this week along with requests for your bio and interview answers.  Very exciting!

Stay tuned!

Best,
Day Al-Mohamed & Meriah Crawford
