News: MySpace - cuz we're hip and our friends are hip.

Tuesday, October 31, 2006

GUD Magazine has a happenin' MySpace!  We now have - over 700 friends - and climbing. GUD friends, too. And we just got there! Come find us!

This is just us getting the word out because -SOON- issue zero is going to hit the printers and heat-seek its way into hot little (and large, as the case may be) hands. We've sent out payments to our authors, pre-orders are coming in (definitely do this and tell your friends, because the 10% sale will not last forever, especially after we get cocky from our inevitable success), and we're making the last proofs and edits as I write this.

Very exciting happenings, to be sure. Thank you so very much for your enthusiastic messages and support!
- reddit, digg, facebook, stumbleupon, etc... please! ;)

how long can we still submit for issue 1?

I think the issue is about two thirds spoken for, at the moment. We will probably still be taking items for Issue 1 for several months--at which point we'll start taking items for Issue 2. Note that we nearly have Issue 0 out the door--proofing/copyediting one last item, working on one last contract... so very, very close.

Kaolin, Just a quick technical question that perhaps you can answer for me. I submitted a story and an article a few days ago. Today I submitted a poem, and noticed that the previous two submissions no longer appear under Current Submissions on my profile. Does this mean that they have been processed, or that they were lost? I expected works under consideration to appear there--perhaps with a "Pending Review" or "Under Consideration" tag--until they were rejected or accepted. Thanks for clearing this up. Nicholas

Nicholas--it appears you've created two accounts. One (Nicholas Ozment, created November 8) with the two previous submissions, and one (Nicholas, created July 18) with the new submission.

another quick, but less technical question: I submitted a piece a while ago -- I think before the issue zero deadline but not sure, it might've been just after. It's still on my profile ... does it automatically get considered for issue 1 and, if so, when will I find out the status? Thanks! -- Chris

All pieces are automatically considered for the next open issue. We should be updating status on items held for a while as soon as Issue 0's pdf is sent to the printers.

Hi Chris,

Yes your piece is automatically in the runing for Issue 1. It's being considered, and is long-listed. You should be hearing from us relatively soon.

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear you'll be contacting the long-listed soon.
