I set a goal at about the time of the release of issue #2 that I wanted to see 25 new subscriptions or the equivalent in single-copy PDF sales or print copy sales of that issue by 3/15. We didn't quite make it: there was a serious slow-down in new sign-ups for a couple weeks...but it has picked up again slightly. And I did go ahead over the weekend and show it to a bunch of VIPS and sf bloggerati and other genre-interested folks in much the way I did with issue #1 (though without the fully free public posting of it). So between the regular readership and all of that extra promotional stuff I did, we've gotten a really excellent exposure for the issue #2 writers, and I'll keep at it the rest of the month.

Issue #3 is set for 4/1 release and it is going to rock out. People will love it. They'll blog about it. The Twitterati will tweet about it.

I think I might even have a special surprise lined up for the third issue, but I don't know for sure yet, so I'll shut the frak up about it for now.
