March was a pretty good month in submission land. Here’s how it went down.
Like I said, pretty good month. Eleven submissions puts me at 27 (the 28th went out today) for the year, which is right where I want to be in terms of hitting my goal of 100. I landed two acceptances, one pro-paying, and had a couple of stories published. Nine rejections is a fair amount, and there were a couple of heartbreakers in there, but taken against the positives for the month, it’s not too bad.
Nine rejections in March.
Most of the rejections were simple form rejections, and even the personal no’s weren’t too exciting. The toughest one was a shortlist rejection for a story I’ve been trying to sell for a while now. There was another rejection for an anthology I thought I had an excellent chance of cracking, but it was not to be. Anyway, both stories are out there again under consideration with other publishers.
I had two flash fiction publication last month, one with The Arcanist and one with Flash Point SF. You can read both by clicking the images/titles below.
The second volume of THE REJECTONOMICON, my Q&A column over at Dark Matter Magazine, went live in March. You can read it by clicking the banner below.
The questions are coming in pretty steadily, but I always need more. If you’d like to see your question appear in the May volume of THE REJECTONOMICON, then follow the guidelines below.
Got it? Then send me those questions!
That was March. How was your month?
