Bah.
There was an error last night when I was updating the status of the stories. I do apologize for that email not going through. I'm working with HeyPublisher to try and get a list of emails so I can send out proper notifications.

Sorry you didn't make it in, this year. The decision was a difficult one. Hopefully you will make it into the next anthology!

The contracts have been emailed out to everyone. The next step can start as soon as we get those back!

We are starting to get some of the stories back from our editor, so you should be expecting those soon!

The stories that required the most editing have been returned from the editor and sent back out to the authors, so things should start to go quicker now.

Also, I'm sorry payment hasn't gone out yet. I'll get that sent this weekend.

So, if I haven't heard from you yet, it means I proofed mine well. Sweet. Take your time

We had two stories that needed some structural changes and polishing that we knew about and talked to the author about going into the editing phase. Those, of course, took a lot longer to edit than the majority of stories that just need a proofreading review.

I'm hoping all of the other stories will be going out to the authors this weekend.

I was just teasing. Totally understand, and in no rush.

All payments have gone out to the authors! This project is one step closer to reality. :)

Most of the stories have been edited and sent back to the author for review. Sang and Ride a Raptor are the last two stories that we're waiting to get from the editor, so check your email, everyone!

Great news! All of the unsolicited stories have been edited and returned to the authors for reviews! As soon as all of the authors have returned the stories we can move on to the next milestone.
