Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

If I want to be a professional, I have to act professionally. I missed a deadline. I don't want my first impression to my favorite magazine to be...well, unprofessional. Surely this particular magazine already has many excellent stories to choose from. Would it not come across as unprofessional, as ...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge!

I think Brittany asked how to do denouement when the protagonist dies. From the perspective of the crew in "Weep No More for the Willow," I did that. It's in the latest Deep Magic. Can't say more, it will wreck the story for folks.There's plenty of other examples, however. Somebody help B...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

I've been hesitant to throw my hat in for the volume 37 challenge because this last quarter took a lot of out me and I wanted to weigh out my commitment as Wulf said.
