Thanks, but I'll touch base with her at the end of the week if I haven't heard anything before. I don't want her to feel that she's being "double teamed."



One way or the other, the story is "Green, Green, Blue."

Yeah well. I sent her my 1,400-word with a msg. Let me see what she has to say. The trimming would make the story somewhat meaningless tho, lol!

I tell you what, I think we can take all the stories of the forum members 'she rejects', group them into an anthology and publish the ebook at smashwords. That way, we don't have to miss out on them.

Please let me know when you decide to start your anthology. I will sure contribute to it.

Meanwhile, I will continue to yell 'S-T-E-LL-A!' until I hear back from her (kidding)

No thanks! I have seen the amount of work this takes by watching form the sidelines. Not interested. Not at all.

I sent a brief email this evening. She hasn't gotten to it yet, so it's still a possibility. (Crossed fingers.)

This was just posted last night...

Fresh update* Feb 20* 11.15 pm Ohio time

First off Stella is very sorry she hasnt yet gotten back to a few of you
She's still in the middle of a family/home move as well as local flooding and her gmail is on the fritz off and on
That's not a total excuse but a chunk of it is beyond her control and she apologizes

Meantime in this homestretch as we approach the deadline of Feb 28 you can use My email to submit and I can
forward the story to her and we'll use my file as a backup if her email crashes

She HAS told me that she does have drop box so a huge number of submissions are already in there
but from today onward send your stuff to my email* * >>>>>>* * frank.zubek@yahoo.com
I'll keep it in my own drop box as well as forward it to her as she is still the editor of the project
but I WILL reply to let you know I got the story

If I do not reply to you in say 3 days assume something went wrong and ask me
Thanks so much for your understanding and patience
Frank and Stella

I'm sorry to hear that she had issues with local flooding. I hope she was able to get everything out in time.

Yeah, people tend to put off delivering bad news. I was worried, too.
