Where is the Amazon?

Just a quick update to apologise for the delay of the elusive next issue, Amazon. In between starting a freelance copywriting/editing business (oh yes, Copy That!) I've been collating and checking and the little design hamster in Jon's head has been huffing and puffing in his wheel.

I can tell you three things:

1. The cover looks great.

2. Looking back at the poems, prose and artwork selected for the issue, it looks set to be one of our strongest Fuselit issues yet.

3. It shall be upon us like a squirrel monkey in the not-too-distant future.

Meanwhile, we are still considering submissions for Fossil. If you're waiting for a reply, I'm working my way through, trying to give all pieces a good read and ponder. If you're considering submitting to us:

a) Check our guidelines please. This will cause the rapport between us to grow rosier by a factor of 10.

b) Consider calling your piece something other than 'Fossil'. I get rather a lot of these, and many are fantastic Fuse-fodder, but a little titular variety would be good.

c) The Fuselit inbox is an ongoing project for me, and works a little like a deli counter. As you arrive, you join the back of the queue and I work from oldest to newest, trying to stay within the time limit for replies. With that in mind, any time-sensitive questions (not submissions) would be best emailed to

I think that brings us up to date. Once again, thanks to everyone for their support, enthusiasm and patience. Don't know about you but I'm pretty excited about our upcoming jungle adventure.

By the way, if you're on Twitter and haven't already followed us, we're @SidekickBooks.
