Re: What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

Yeah, I agree, an HM doesn't guarantee publication. Some forumites have mentioned that even their finalists haven't sold. Still, receiving an HM (silver or otherwise) is an undeniable good sign that the story has at least some merit. I've sold half of my HMs. I've sold a few rejects too. And yes, k...

Re: What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

I second that it's a matter of market, often. I've sold 6 out of 14 HMs (two of my HMs were the same story, just edited), all semi-pro, and 4 out of 6 Rs, two pro and two semi-pro. Apparently my Rs actually do better in the world outside of WotF than my HMs. Hadn't actually calculated that before--...

Re: What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

Even Rs can be publishable. I've sold 3 out of 5 Rs so far, and only 1 out of 5 HMs. I do feel my HMs are better than my Rs in general, so it is just a matter of market really. I second that it's a matter of market, often. I've sold 6 out of 14 HMs (two of my HMs were the same story, just edited), ...

Re: What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

I'll add a little more to Preston's definition: SHM means you were in the "Finalist pile" that Dave segregates from the Rs and HMs. From what I have heard from people who have asked him directly, he culls and mulls, then culls some more. So the silvers survive an extra round, and are give...

What's a Silver Honorable Mention as opposed to a regular HM?

Well, it's about time. Been trying to sign into the forums for ages. Guess those bugs got ironed out. I got an HM last year in the third quarter, but I was wondering what differentiates a Silver HM? I feel like the reason I didn't get a Silver at least was because my story was somewhat bare bones. I...
