Did much writing work stuff yesterday with very little actual words happening. Caught up on some Tangent work, sundry bookkeeping, completed and sent off the answers for my Aberrant Dreams interview, and wrote several crits and thank you notes for Critters.
It is unusual, but they buy Greek language reprint rights, which I'm not exactly doing anything with anyway. It's pretty much found money for me.
I was indeed startled when I made my first sale to them, but as they did pay me and send my contrib. copies as they stipulated, not to mention they put out a nice product and pay decent rates, I don't have a problem with their business model.
Just seems a bit presumptuous that they would print before getting your "go ahead" so to speak. I mean, what happens to your right to veto the sale if it's an unsavoury publication (not saying it is, but it's a what-if scenario)? :)
I'm trying to understand how the whole writing business thing works because virtually everyone I know is suddenly a writer (sans me).
But I do understand Commission. So many, many congrats to you!!
Oh, and that icon? My favorite thus far.
