I spent most of the afternoon working on projects for Science Fiction Trails, where I am publisher. The issue is nearly full and it's still March. This is an annual magazine that is slated for October release. It wasn't that long ago that I nearly had to beg for stories. For some issues, it seemed like there just weren't any to be found. Now, it's not all that hard to fill an issue. If sales were stronger, I might even considering increasing the frequency. That was a pipe dream just a few issues ago. As our sales, and especially our e-book sales, continue to grow, it may not be long before we see a quarterly magazine--but not this year. This year we'll hold the course. One reason we're on our eighth issue is we've taken a conservative tack. In the world of small press publishing, there are still plenty of storms to weather.
