A NOTE FROM EIC TAMARA BURROSS GRISANTI:
Coffin Bell Journal is currently on a short hiatus due to unexpected medical and family emergencies on my part. Coffin Bell is a labor of love, and is run by a staff of volunteers. Unfortunately, I am, in addition to EIC, the sole production manager for Coffin Bell, responsible for migrating work from Submittable to the Coffin Bell website. Due to these unforeseen circumstances–which have impacted my health, my finances, and my family–issue 2.3 (which was scheduled to launch 7/1/19) will launch on 9/1/19. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this difficult time.
I have plans in place to train at least one more editor on back-end production so this doesn’t have to happen in case of future emergencies.
These circumstances may also impact the publication of Coffin Bell TWO. As it was mostly financed by myself, I’m not sure at this time that I will be able to afford to print the second anthology. And if I do print it, I may not be able to provide free contributor copies. I hope to be able to, and ask for your patience as we make that determination.
We appreciate your support, and we will be back on our regular schedule for issue 2.4, the “Masquerade” issue, which will be published 10/1/19.
We understand your concern for your work, and thank you for trusting us with it. All work which was scheduled to go live 7/1/19 will go live 9/1/19, and we ask that you only send emails to us about your work in issue 2.3 if you wish to withdraw it from publication.
As always, we love you and love your dark work, and hope to bring more of it to readers for years to come.
