Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

My other impressive statistic is that 39 of my submissions are consecutive--I submitted and then immediately missed the next quarter, but I haven't missed another since. I can't say that my persistence has paid off with the contest (yet wotf007), but it has helped me generate a lot of stories! 32 of...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

I keep forgetting to report in here, but I submitted on September 29th, and I just received the confirmation a few minutes ago, so I'm in for Quarter 4!

I first entered the contest 10 years ago this quarter, and I've only missed one quarter since--this is my 40th entry wotf024

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...

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...

I have a new story out--"Claimed by the Sea" in the August issue of Deep Magic. I think I mentioned this before, but this was one of my Writers of the Future HMs that I only revised slightly before submitting elsewhere.

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.
