Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I was trying to track down a status update on my submissions here today, and I came across a recent comment on the guidelines, which asked the same question (scroll to the bottom of this page for the last question and response: http://blog.flametreepublishing.com/fantasy-gothic/2017-short-story-subm...

Re: Success!

After a few years of nearly giving up on it (more than once), my story "Fish and Fools" has been published in Stupefying Stories 1.17 ! In unrelated news, I'm in my first year of Campbell Award eligibility, but I wasn't paying attention, so I didn't make it into the anthology (I almost did...

This was an interesting exercise for me because I usually only pay attention to stats I have control over (mostly stories written and submitted, rather than those accepted or published), but it looks like I've had 4 stories published this year, which is the most I've had in one year: "The Day t...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q3 - Volume 33

I just checked my email from Joni last year, and my HM email from her came on 9/12. The official announcement email of the winners came in October. So hopefully we all still have a while yet. Plus, this year has been a bit rough, it seems, for Joni, and things are taking longer than she anticipates...

For half a second I though this is it. A note form galaxy press. Two actually as it turns out. Both saying I can get a badge in the header. For which quarter(s)? I got some as well--for Quarters 2 & 3 of last year, and one that was fuzzy on the timeline--either two years ago or Q3 of last year....
