Well, the silence over the past few days had a lot to do with getting the spring list into shape, and it’s starting to look pretty good! We’re almost done with copyedits on three of our four spring releases (only task remaining is to check the comments that came/are coming back from the authors) and to move into production with those. The fourth of next spring’s releases went back to the author with a very detailed edit for some more fixing, and should then move into copyedits.
On the schedule for the next couple of weeks is reading four different manuscripts for possible publication in fall 09/spring 10!
In the meantime, I’m sad to report that Tenant B has moved out. Hopefully that won’t actually stop her from reading and commenting on submissions and manuscripts, but it’s still kind of sad not being able to yell across the courtyard, “Oh my God, you’ve got to read this.” We have a new tenant moving in on the 25th, so that should be interesting.
