Absolutlely Nothing

Yup, that's what I have to report (or I'd have reported it sooner). Working on web-site content for a landscape architect (yawn), the new issue of NCCNM (aka that darn business magazine) is out and I don't have to think about that until January. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet.

Bought a few stories in the past few weeks for IGMS and have a couple rewrites in the works with some other authors. The good news, I guess, is that we are 100% caught up on the first reads (meaning everything submitted before Dec. 1 has been read at least once). There are still about 100 + stories that are in the 'read again' pile (and some of those folks still have to be notified that they are in the 'read again' pile), and about 25 people in the old 'read again' pile. But we are getting more and more up-to-date on the submissions with each passing month. This is taking longer than I thought it would, but then you don't get caught up on a year's worth of backlog (with new stuff continuing to pour in every week) overnight either.

On a vaguely related note, I have a few conventions that I am now officially scheduled to attend. RavenCon is late April in Richmond, VA, and ConCarolinas is mid-June in Charlotte NC. I'll mention them again when it gets closer to time to go.

Necon, Ed, NECON!!! You've got to come to Necon. With this year's line-up, you won't regret it. It's summer camp for writers. Picture this: midnight, picnic table in the quad, chips and salsa, and a few good drinks, sitting with Jack Ketchum, Tom Monteleone, Rick Hautula (AJ Mathews), Beth Massie, Cort Skinner...and on the list goes. That's what happens at Necon. Only 200 attendees allowed. Intimate, fun and amazing. If you can stand the skeeters and the RI humidity in July it's a little slice of heaven. *wink*
