All of the files for issue 10 have been uploaded and are ready to go!
We’ll be fulfilling hardcovers very soon and making digital copies available to subscribers.
We’re crossing our fingers that the change to our fulfillment workflow won’t be too brutal now that Amazon has shut down Createspace. We’ll probably start fulfilling before Thanksgiving.
The last couple months have been a nightmare, between my car getting wrecked, being buried at work, getting more submissions than we could’ve imagined (not a bad thing in itself), and all sorts of other craziness. For instance, we’re trying to get Amazon to take down a listing by a screen-scraping bot that’s using our name to sell a poster of a painting we once blogged on an ‘art’ day. And markup text doesn’t work on Amazon descriptions anymore. Go figure.
We’re trying as hard as we can to put our submission period to bed. We’ve gotten to under 40 stories left to read and nearly 20 rejection letters to write (plus whatever gets cut from those unread stories). It’s exhausting! Not to mention emotionally draining.
If you want to help alleviate some of our stress and misery, you can do so at the cost of nothing more than a few moments of your time by leaving a review of an issue of Cirsova that you’ve read!
