Well...tonight I feel that I have little reason keeping myself waiting for 1 Aug. I have decided to do it like the last issue - releasing it a bit earlier than promised! Any complaint about that?
So, Issue Two is here, born healthily with 48 rich pages from talented creators globally. Do download it or flip it online or both! Desktop or laptop or tablet or print it out...just preferrably not reading on your cell phone - the screen is too small for the great works!
Finally, I can be relaxed a little...I'm in no hurry of the audio tracks but if you do wanna send me your version of some pieces, go ahead ;) I always welcome pleasant surprises!
Tell me what you think and keep your good work coming this way!
Happy reading and thank you for helping us grow!
Issue 2 is at its previewing stage where contributors and the BLJ reading team are invited to approve the final version of the magazine. Also, the foreword will be written by an invited educator who has given me so much inspiration and encouragement in my teaching and writing endeavours. If things go smoothly, I'll stick with August (hopefully early August) when the magazine is released online. Will update you soon!
I'd say that Issue Two's first draft is 70% complete. It's getting tricky to wrap it up with the final pieces because the page numbering may not go right. The job is not as easy as I thought partly because my schedule is yet to allow me to fully invest time into the design of the magazine. I am aware that some of the contributors (and readers) are getting a bit impatient for the publication of this second issue. In fact, I should be the one who's more impatient. But I won't force myself to finish it in a rush (I don't think any of the writings I accepted were done in a hurry either). Quality comes first. I will find the best quality time to complete this issue. I have a good feeling about this and I hope you will feel the same.
Hi all! Here you'll be updated with anything related to BLJ or me or whatever I found appropriate. Have a great day ;)
