Ooooh, I've already gotten my HM, but WizeHive just sent out a mass mailer asking for feedback on the submissions form. That's just mean.

Meghan, I am not that good with graphics editing. I'll have to hire someone out and right now the book is not selling well enough to warrant it. Though I did get three sales from Smashwords the first week it went up.

I bet I could go with a burnt or autumn orange and it would look better.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

It's still technically a "form." Back in the days of paper sub, KD would, from time to time, send back the first page of my manuscript with a hand written not urging me to keep entering alongside my certificate.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Apparently KD hadn't made her final decisions, so it will be up to the new judge, whoever that is, to sort those out. Some of us are in for an even longer wait with stories in limbo (because the new judge might have wildly different tastes, so what might have been a maybe for KD could be a straight...

Has she been? Hmm, my HM says to read the Daily Kick, but it doesn't say he's the coordinating judge, just a judge. And I already get his kicks, though, I must admit, I haven't been reading them since Stephen King bashed Stephanie Meyer. Not because King bashed Meyer, but because of the responses i...

Not to interrupt the Duotropery, but can anyone copy/paste the form text, if I may be so bold as to ask? I'm very interested to know if David Farland is the new Coordinating Judge.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

It was in the e-mail for my HM. Joni urged contestants to subscribe to his Daily Kicks. I'm not sure if that means he's the new coordinating judge or not, but it looked that way. Thanks everyone. I didn't have high hopes for the story, but I thought there was a chance. I do know, if Dave is the new ...

That was my first choice, but for whatever reason, I wimped out, went with the other. Lesson learned.
