wotf020 That's two "didn't quite work for me" rejections in a row from Lightspeed. Maybe one day I'll find the magical elixir what will identify "what works" everytime!

Re: Five Minute Rant

Ugh. 239 days waiting for Tor and my HM from last year gets rejected again with a "Thanks for your patience." I'm not going to waste my time with them until all other markets have been tried and exhausted. wotf016 Looks like I'll be working to publish it outside of the pro markets after a ...

Still rant-worthy, but - you know.

Re: Success!

Had a great email this morning. My Q1 rejected story "A Little Slice Of Heaven" sold to the webzine "Mindflights." The story should appear some time in the next three months. In other news, I guess I have to start submitting more stories to markets that won't have me. I'm a Duotr...

Re: Five Minute Rant

It's the last place I send things. Better than trunking, that's for sure. Worth trying before self pubbing too, I'd say. Let's see, five times the pay for three times the wait--the math works out in my mind. That being said--only 75 days left before my form rejection (supposing I fall on the averag...

Re: Five Minute Rant

Rant: Seriously - what is up with Tor.com? An average of more than 300 days per response? My 2011 HM is there languishing right now. I'm thinking seriously about withdrawing the story and going someplace else (I've submitted it a few other pro markets with good comments but no takers). Any thoughts ...

Hi everyone, My name is Kevin Ikenberry and I'm a science fiction writer. I've been fortunate enough to actually sell a short story last year and I've finished my first novel and trying to find a home for it now. In Q4 of last year I entered the contest for the first time and received an Honorable M...
