Thanks, it's been a lot of work, and still a lot to do, but it's looking good.

Please let us know what you think.
I've been "away" a while working on marketing and stuff for Noir Nation.
Has anyone had a chance to read Noir Nation No. 1 yet? We could really use a few more "Likes" and reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
If there are fellow Crimespacers who plan to buy a copy of Noir Nation No. 1, would it be too rude to ask zou to go ahead and do it? We need a little boost to get things really going. The initial buzz bumped us up pretty high in the Amazon rankings, but that has started to drop off again.
Also, we are actively looking for stories for Noir Nation No.2. Would love to have some more Crimespace folk in the next issue, it's the least we could do to pay back for the community support! Also we would love to hear what more (or less) you would like to see in the next issue.
Get to writing!
