Hi Challengeers. Although there is a forum about the Mixed Blessings books being published from the EC winning Challenge entries, I suspect a lot of people miss it. So I'm just going to open this post in the actual Challenge forum and provide updates here as well.
First bit of information, if you placed in the Editors' Choice during January to March 2014, you will be receiving a release form from Breath of Fresh Air Press very soon. (Half of you should have it already.) I'm hoping to finish the last of them off today. If you are in that category and don't receive one by Monday, PLEASE let me know (and check your junk mail, just in case). If you have placed in other quarters as well, you will also be receiving a "blanket" release form to cover those eligible articles.
All other previous Editors' Choice winners will be receiving their "blanket" release form (which covers up to December 2013) as I work through the list. I am about a quarter of the way through, but with over 440 authors involved in this project, to date, it is taking time (as each author's eligible articles are listed against the relevant book they will appear in). Getting there.
AND the first book in the series should be available at the end of April. Still trying to track down a few more people for bio notes, but other than that, it's looking really good.
So the "Challenge books" are definitely on a roll. Hopefully, Book 2, Classically Inspired, will be available at the end of August.
