A little while ago we promised we'd be back, and we will be as of 1st July 2010. We also promised there'd be a few surprises along the way.
Well, if you care to take a quick tap over at the Ye Olde Editors tab you might get your first surprise (or maybe not). Matt - Thriller Dude - knows his stuff about the thriller genre, and Col - Crime Dude - knows his about the crime and noir genres, but what was missing was someone with a real understanding and passion for the horror genre. Horror Dude needs no introduction to TKnC regulars, and I'm sure you'll all welcome him to the TKnC head shed. Matt and Col are very pleased to have him on-board. Please keep your eyes peeled for an up-coming interview with Horror Dude soon.
Having three editors on board means that not only is the workload easier for each of us, but it also means we can concentrate on what we know best - our own specific genres. Hence the new submission process.
From here on in, when you submit using the specific header in the title, your story will go through to that specific editor, so you now know that you are getting the best chance possible of having your work featured here. But here's the 'glitch': your work has got to be good to get by each of the guys, cause they'll be looking at it with their expert eyes. Take faith in this new rule, though, because you'll know that your work has made it on its merit and will be valued so much more. We're gonna be tougher, we're not gonna accept under par stuff, but we believe that you're all up to the challenge, and then some.
Let the thrilling, killing and chilling commence. (Well, in a few days time that is).
