... meh I'm still around to see if I placed at ALL. At least I can't be singled out by name!
There's really nowhere good to put stories over 10,000 words, is there? I mean, a few, but I find I get rejected out of them really quickly. I understand ill fits, but man, if you don't roll well a few times in the places that accept longer works you're stuck with a pile of novellas and nothing to do with them except for save them I guess.
And I still want to see us reach page 100. Go team!
While it would be awesome to sell the longer stories into paying markets, you're right, there aren't a lot that take them. On the other hand, my understanding is that the longer short stories are doing well at finding a niche in the self-pub e-market. I'd encourage you, if you run out of places the send, publish them!
