As requested I've submitted the minisite to discussed sites and attached a report of the submission. Writer got back to me with the 10 articles as well. They have been uploaded and the sitetitle is now ready.
Its 6am (no I'm normally not an early waker, but thanks to jet lag I've woken surprisingly early today. And I've already managed to write and publish 10 articles to a minisite and submit another one to targeted bookmarking and directory services.....sort of.
