Thank you again for keeping your blog so up to date and informative.
Do they publish a list of contributors to the Stony Thursday Book, do you know, or must one wait until it is published?

Thanks for dropping by DQ.
I don't know about Stony Thursday. I didn't send anything in. Usually you only get to hear if you're in or at the launch.

I think I got an "regrets" email last year telling me that I wasn't in but I can't remember if this was before the launch or not.
