Pretty slow this month, and I’m not sure whether that means some of my submissions are in the running to be published, or if the rejection piles are so large that they just haven’t gotten to me yet. Working on the novel has reduced my submissions pace, but priorities are priorities. Two confirmed rejections, which was a little depressing, but both stories are slow-paced, which has caused me problems before. Need more coffee.
The February Scoreboard:
14 February: 32-day rejection from RayGun Revival for “Stress Reaction”
18 February: 62-day rejection from A Fly in Amber for “One Smile at a Time”
19 February: Submitted “The Time Share” to Brain Harvest
27 February: Submitted “A charl13brn Turing Test” to Every Day Fiction
Still awaiting responses from Flash Fiction Online for “A Quiet Afternoon at the Alabaster County Ladies’ Sewing Circle and Patchwork Society (try saying that three times fast), Doorways Magazine for “Prison Dreams,” Tower of Light Fantasy for “The Curse,” and Escape Clause for “At My Table.”
“Our Lady of Chagrin” is scheduled for publication in Beyond Centauri in April 2009.
“The Silver Tree” is scheduled for publication in Kaleidotrope, Dec 2009/Jan 2010.
