PM sent.  Sorry I didn't see this thread until so late!  Is the deadline still September 14?

Ma -- got your pm with the e-mail address; thanks!

I should have mentioned -- I'm a Yank.  My short story could easily be modified to fit in a UK setting; does it matter?  (And, do most people say "Santa Claus" or "Father Christmas" in Britain these days?)

That's the beauty of this anthology Manuel, we have authors worldwide. You don't need to change your voice. ;D

Ma -- I was going to buy the 2008 anthology from Lulu, but their login doesn't work.  The problem's definitely not on my end; when you try to log in, it goes to a blank screen.

And, I can't use the contact feature on the site, because that requires you to log in first.  Genius design.

If you have a way to contact Lulu.com, maybe you could see if they're having a general problem with that?

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will clear up the querys in the next 7 days. However, due to this I am extending the period of submissions for newbies until the end of September, so keep em' coming folks. ;D ;D

Hey Manuel, apparently it is fine this end, but it seems it is a bit cheaper on Amazon. :)

Well, the login for lulu.com still doesn't work.  Does anybody have an e-mail address for them?  (Their system for reporting a problem with the site requires on to login first.)

ETA: Never mind about that.  I've heard enough about lulu that I know I'm not going to use them as a writer; don't think I want to spend my money there either.  I'll get the anthology from a different source.

As I said Manuel, it is cheaper from Amazon as it is on offer. Really not sure what is wrong with Lulu I am afraid. :)

Sorry, Ma -- didn't mean to hijack the thread!  I look forward to reading the 2008 anthology.

So, the deadline is September 30, I believe?  I've got another idea I'd like to write up; do you allow more than one submission from the same writer?
