Congrats, Michael! I enjoyed that.

Just wanted to let you all know that the first issue of Goldfish Grimm's Spicy Fiction Sushi launched today. It features stories by Adam Israel and Carrie Cuinn. It'd be awesome if you checked it out and maybe left a comment.

Thanks to those who read and enjoyed "A Minor God of Mischief."

Brenda, I'd like to leave a comment on the stories but on my PC the form doesn't have any labels for which field is email, which is name, etc. I tried both Firefox and IE and saw the same thing. Maybe it's just me?

Hmm, I can see the form labels, though they are very light. The order is name, email, website. I'll have Matt take a look at it in a bit.

They show up in Safari on my phone, so they're definitely there. But even knowing where they should be and what they should look like they're not showing up on my PC's browsers.

Computers, aren't they fun?

I can see them in Chrome, but the grey on grey is a bit difficult for me to read

As an aside: the website is pretty darn spiffy, and your advertising rates very reasonable.

Computers are definitely fun, Michael! lol We've been testing the site on a number of browsers, but we're both Mac users, so it's hard to gauge exactly what it'll look like for everyone.

Thanks, Izz. Ya, I think we're going to make a color adjustment there since it's hard to see. And I'm glad you like the site! I'll pass along your compliments to Matt

Thanks, fihr and defcon!

And, Brenda, the form labels show up fine in Firefox on my home desktop. I guess it was just the other computer I was on which was being wonky.
