Book #39: Regency Romance

I’ve been preoccupied this month (and last month) by the sense that I’m running out of time to find regular full-time work, and need to step up my search-and-apply process. And I have done that! And it has actually - knock on wood - been paying off in call-backs and interviews since Memorial Day, I assume because employers who look at resumes were also invigorated by the great weather we had last weekend.
So that’s my excuse for why there are only two stories in this issue. Even with that as an excuse, though, this is a pretty sad turnout. ^^ I don’t mean the stories in the issue are bad - in fact they’re both really fun and funny, you should definitely read them - but just that it probably wouldn’t have been too hard to find another couple stories for the issue, considering the theme and IB’s writing pool, even taking into account that a lot of people had Finals last month.
What I’m trying to say is, sorry for being a bad editor. ^^ Actually, Eve and I have been talking about scrounging up a couple more stories and putting them up as a bonus to the issue. They’d go up midway through the gap between issues, so, about a month from now. Anyone interested? If so, please email your resume, cover letter, a sample of your work, and your required starting salary to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may consider your application. Please, no phone calls.
…Just kidding. Except that I’m not kidding about emailing email@example.com if you want to write an original “regency romance” short story for us, because you should totally do that, obviously.
