Interesting Data Point

Amount of time it takes from the moment you mail out an acceptance note to the moment a post declaring the news hits LiveJournal: roughly 30 minutes. Or thereabouts.

I wasn’t sitting by my computer constantly checking my mail. I swear. It was just a coincidence that I happened to be there when it arrived. Honestly!My only defence is that it’s my first sale. :)

Would be fun to see your scorecard for the issue: X acceptances, X secondary announcements. That’s really an unexpected thing for me about personal blogs: welcome and delightful promotion which has that benefit of sincerity and diverse reach. It’s certainly brought a lot of periodicals to my attention that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

Blush.

Ann & I were on the phone about it about 30 seconds afterward, too.

Hey, thanks for not holding a grudge about me calling you Patrick Nielsen Hayden… ;)
