Re: If I get a fourth professional sale while I'm waiting for the results, do I get disqualified?

Any ideas onto how? I am reluctant to email the contest director and suggest that she's wrong... But perhaps I could say there was a common interpretation on the boards that it is the fourth published Sfwa sale that disqualifies you, and ask for a blog post to clarify the situation for everyone?

Re: If I get a fourth professional sale while I'm waiting for the results, do I get disqualified?

I queried Joni on my 3rd sale; she said that I would be in eligible *upon publication* of my *3rd* SFWA qualified sale. Everyone told me on a previous thread that it should be interpreted as the 4th sale, but that is the message I got directly from the contest director, so make interpretations at yo...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q2 - Volume 34

Guys, I got a first pass R as well. This is my fourth entry and second R. The first R that I got was for my first attempt in the competition. It was devastating, and confusing, and hit *hard*. I rewrote that story - especially the start - and got I upgraded to an HM. For those of you currently exper...

Re: Contest Eligibility

Ishmael, I just wanted to say thanks for posting the link to SFWA approved markets. I just thought I'd accidentally pro'd out of the contest, but I checked the list and am still in. Re the contest rule that those with "more than three publications" are ineligible: a friend interprets this ...

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

I have a Time Travel story in. Unfortunately I think it breaks a cardinal time travel rule, but oh well, its my first time travel story. Did you guys see the single rejection on the grinder a few days ago? For a moment, I was very excited, absolutely certain that a wave of rejections was about to be...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

Quarter 1 is the worst. Do you all remember the good ol' days of Quarter 4? Those were some sweet response times.

We're past Greenroom's estimate of a week, and it IS a Thursday today, but I think Rebecca is probably right and we'll be looking at next week.
