Woo, thank you!

My entry for Q2 I think is better than my first two. But maybe they won’t agree with me wotf019

Dang, I got an R. Pretty bummed, as I thought it was superior to my HM in pretty much every way. Oh well

Congratulations everyone! I'm new to the contest, so wondering if someone could explain the difference between Silver HM and HM.

thank you! Good luck to everyone who hasn't received news yet

About what I expected, to be honest. The story's been out to so many markets and seen so many revisions that I just... need to be done with it, so I've posted it on my website.

Congratulations everyone with their SHMs too.

Duotrope reports some acceptances, is that likely or are they mistaking an HM for an acceptance, I wonder.
