Counting Down, 6 Weeks to Launch

Well, it's been a while since my last update, hasn't it? No, nothing is amiss in Melusine-land, just hectic. I apologize for the silence to any readers who've been checking here for updates. The journal is indeed proceeding pretty much on schedule. My original hoped-for launch date was March 20, but to be safe rather than sorry (this being my first journal and me not being the necessarily early-bird sort) I'm going to amend that to March 31, with a possibility it will come in a day or two earlier -- better to err on that side, right?

Proofs will be going out soon for the debut issue. I'm still reading and accepting submissions for the summer issue. This time, art is the only genre that is filled so far, but if you have art to send, feel free to submit it for the fall issue. I will start replying to submissions again after the Spring issue is out, although of course there is the occasional submission that will get a 24-hour acceptance if the stars are properly aligned.

So I look forward to announcing the site/issue launch in just six weeks. There's some rather awesome work in this first issue that I feel privileged to be publishing, and I'm pretty excited to share it with you all.

Until then...
