I know that a new issue was promised in January and then... silence. A variety of personal items have taken the bulk of Jamie and I's attention for many months now, forcing us to leave Lightning'd on the backburner. I know that this must be quite frustrating to everyone who has sent submissions for the next issue, and I offer you our sincere apologies for the delay.
In that time, however, Jamie and I have been discussing the future of this project and where we want to go with it. This ongoing discussion has landed us on a few decisions:
1) The PDF / "print" issue of Lightning'd will become an annual publication.
Putting out an issue of a magazine, even one as small and straightforward as ours, takes a fair amount of time and effort. Time and effort that, unfortunately, Jamie and I each often find in short supply. Our thinking is that by switching to an annual format we can be more conscientious while working to improve the quality of the project itself.
