I set up an announcement list on Google Groups for anyone who wants reminders on submission deadlines, or to hear when the first issue is out: http://groups.google.com/group/yogsnotebook.
We’ve started to receive the first story submissions. I emailed everyone I could think of who might be interested in sending something, or know people who would, and posted it a few places online, so now I’m obsessively checking Google Analytics to see how many hits the submission page is getting.
Lucas has a bit about it on his blog, too.
And today I discovered that Yog is also the nickname of James D. Macdonald, writer of many fine books and originator of Yog’s Law, which states: Money flows toward the writer. Maybe he can be our unofficial patron saint. I’d love to have this succeed enough that we can pay pro rates.
