My entry is in. That's it. Can't do any more. Thanks again to all for advice including Gav Thorpe and Peter Fehervari for their advice - very generous of published authors to spend time doing that.

Good luck, all, and big thanks for all the stimulating discussion and tips. :)

I've got a lot of confidence in you all, and even have my fingers cross that I'll be able to be all hipster and (honestly) claim I knew you all and liked your things before you were famous!

I'm excited to see what comes of it all, not just of new writers, but in the commissioning's taste for a bit more variety in the stories being told.

It's even got me thinking about potentially putting pen to paper/fingers to keyboard, one day...

As a reader I am really excited by the broad criteria set by the BL submission window and what that could mean for the content of Inferno. Have always wanted to see more stories away from the battlefield that bring to life the 40k universe.

As a (probably very bad and as yet/never published) writer it also excited me that BL wanted those kind of stories as well.

The omens are good :D

BTW did anyone who submitted receive any kind of confirmation email? I submitted through the online form and GoogleDocs and got confirmation screen but kind of expected the system to generate an email receipt?

According to Bolter and Chainsword, no confirmation email is normal.

I've not bothered this time.

Good luck all.

Thanks and phew (though pity BL did not set up an automatic confirmation email).
