So Fey done done

So I just turned in the last edits to So Fey. They were mainly minor revisions to the contributor's biographies. You can often tell a bit about an author by how they choose to present themselves in under a hundred words. Some are shy and give only the basics and some are extroverted and add a bit of wit. Okay, with one fellow, a friend, I added a line to his bio about cheese that he won't expect. I wish Haworth would have allowed me to include the author's thoughts on their stories, but they said it made the book too long. Oh well. That sort of thing fascinates me.

I'm curious how this book will do. Haworth has never before released a collection of fantasy stories. The closest book that So Fey resembles might be Breaking the Landscape: Fantasy.

The release date is October, but, like Vintage, it's quite possible that the finished book might be in my hands in time for my birthday, Aug 28th. That would be a nice present.

Well I picked up the proof and couldn't put it down... I think it's marvellous!

You received an ARC?

Yup. Well, a prepub galley rather than an ARC.

Wonderful! But please forgive my ignorance, as they didn't tell me who they were sending copies to, but you're a review for...?

I'm looking forward to that one. I had considered submitting my story "Ravenous" to it, but I finished the tale long after your deadline. Maybe next time - are you doing another one? I think it's a great idea.

I'd like to do another, but who knows how the first will sell. Right now Haworth does not seem eager for more books from lil' ol' me. I think it's because I'm too demanding for them.

Well, poo on them. That's supposed to be a good thing in editors! :)

I hope it sells well. It should, if anybody bothers to do decent marketing for the collection.

Marketing? Haworth? ::shakes head::

I annoyed the hell out of their production team. Let's just say that in 2006 they offered me new contracts. Those offers seem to have been rescinded.
