i'm just no good at blurbs

Posted on Posted in journal, shadow bound, stumbling towards publication, the wages of salt, writing life

Today, I am full of requests for blurbs and biographies.

Note to self: when you write a story, write a blurb then and there. You'll need it later.

Pledged has been read through (and hopefully all those embarrassing typos caught and corrected) and emailed to my agent and editor, which means it's off my desk for the immediate future. There was a lot of wonky formatting this time around, courtesy of the switch to mac (Word on the mac seems determined to ignore my underlining, bastard program). Of course, I forgot to send along a blurb, so had to spend this morning on that.

Also, news from PS Publishing that Issue #18 is ready for design, which means I need to provide a blurb and bio for them. It looks like they'll be publishing a signed edition as well, which should prove interesting, as the signing sheets are set to arrive…right in the middle of my interstate move. Oh yeah, that'll be fun.

  1. The acceptance post (lost now since a database crash) was in April '07, if you can believe it! Luckily, PostScripts is the kind of mag that pay on acceptance, rather than publication, so I didn't have to wait near as long for payment as the story has waited for publication 😉
