So, I owe y’all an apology.
Especially the people who have submitted to QoS, and are waiting with bated breath to hear back from me. I’ve fallen a bit behind. Yes, it’s going to be late. Not by much! but real life has been kicking my butt and I meant to be sending out contracts like two weeks ago at least and that hasn’t happened yet, and I can’t publish until I have contracts signed. So that’s going to be my task here for the next couple days.
I’m now shooting for July 4th as the publication date. That’ll give me a while to get contracts out, get them back, throw together the files, and then get it out there. To people who submitted to QoS, I am so, so sorry that you’ve been waiting so long. I know I said I’d let you know either way what the decision was on your work by June 15th, and I’m painfully aware that it is now the 19th. Look for an email from me by the end of the 21st.
I feel awful about doing this, but QoS is by no means anyone’s bread and butter, so I needed to prioritize the pest control issues going on in my apartment, and my continued (and fruitless) job hunt. I ask that you guys be patient with me, and I promise that you’ll get something worth the wait. I’d rather you guys get something done correctly and well and a little late, than get something slapped-together and incomplete and half-assed but on time.
If I have time in the next couple of days, I’m going to write a series of posts on Strong Female Characters in pop lit/media, so look for that, I think you’ll enjoy it.
Anyhow, here’s David Tennant, who is the only one who can express just how sorry I am.
