    Looks like a DNS issue to me. Maybe their hosting service moved them to an alternate server--this sometimes happens without the client knowing about it--and the DNS has gotten messed up.

    It should reset in 72 hours or less time. At least in theory. Sometimes it winds up taking longer if the hosting service has buggered something up really bad.

    Like I said, a DNS problem can take several days to sort itself out. It wasn't working for me yesterday, but seems to have returned as of today.

    I thought she meant was going to sub to epubs that don't do print since Samhain puts all it's novels over 50,000 words into trade paperback in brick and mortar stores.

    We pitched a novel to Don, at World Horror this year in SLC. He asked for a full, no word yet but we are used to a year turnaround from our other publishers.

    Mazel tov!!!

    Checked out your blog real quick and the banner of the skyline brought on a rush of homesickness.

    Then, read your entry about the Whole Foods opening in Lincoln Park. I lived at Fullerton and Racine for 25+ years. Now, I really am homesick.

    Good luck with your upcoming release!

    The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. - Dorothy Parker

    Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other. - Arthur Schopenhauer

    I fell asleep reading a dull book and dreamed I kept on reading, so I awoke from sheer boredom. - Heinrich Heine

    It is only a step from boredom to disillusionment, which leads naturally to self-pity, which in turn ends in chaos. - Manly Hall

    Aw, Smoothseas. Big hug!

    The city does have a way of creeping into your soul, doesn't it? I've lived in many places in the US and abroad, but Chicago has always been home.

    Samhain is one of the epubs I am considering submitting to. I'm working on perfecting my query and all that fun stuff.

    Question for those of you who have submitted or have been accepted:

    On the website, it says to include a short blurb in your email query letter and then later it says to include a blurb on the cover letter of your synopsis. Does that mean the query letter and cover letter are the same? Do I write a query letter and a cover letter with my synopsis? Am I writing the same blurb twice?

    Am I overthinking this?

    Thanks!

    I put the blurb in the email query, then I pasted it on the cover PAGE of the longer synopsis, i.e. the page with your contact info and title of book, etc. Then the synopsis starts on the 2nd page. Hope this helps. Good luck with your submission!

    I did the same thing. My guess is it's so the person reading it has the blurb right there in case they're reading it on a Kindle or hard copy or something. Maybe? I don't know. But yeah, copy and paste it on the cover page of the synopsis.

    My first full length novel comes out from Samhain in December and my shorter published fiction is published elsewhere so I'm new to Samhain too. I have the cover art for Wicked Wonderland already as you can see. lol
