This is no way to start a magazine…

We keep getting emails asking when we’re gonna launch the submission site.  Ok, so we launched the damn submission site.  What happened as a result?  Let’s see…

Kelling’s shins have splinted

Madigan has run off to the coast

Art director has blisters on his fingers

Adamvan is unaccounted for

2 interns drunk  to debilitation

1 intern very possibly quit

1 intern writing this blog because nobody else could be bothered to do it.

Fun times.  Now go submit.

Seriously, go submit.  Adamvan is worried about nonfic submissions.

Is this what blogs are supposed to be about?
