W1S1 April Update (2014 edition)

 Well April flew by, didn't it? Was a busy month, had moved from Tucson to south Texas (a loooong drive)--which isn't reflected in my author bios, but oh well. 

So how did this month go?

Stories written: 1 (for Sword & Sorceress)
Stories submitted:18 (mostly resubs with a couple new things)
Stories accepted: 2
Stories rejected:18

A much slower month compared to the others. I usually send out many more submissions, but since very few were coming back to me, well, you know. Maybe editors go on Spring Break, hmm...

Received an acceptance from Horror D'oeuvres--that'll be out next month, and another acceptance from The Red Penny Papers for "Eat a Sandwich, Man"--which I'm quite relieved to have finally sold, seeing as it's been around for, oh, about 2 years, racking up 15 R's in that time (horror-humor seems to be a tough sale). That one will be out in Spring 2015. 

And in case you missed them, publications for this month:
"Twisty", part of Unlike Story's April Fool's Day issue (free to read!)

"Mapping in the Darkness", from Perihelion (free to read!)

"Spirit Flare", from Spark: A Creative Anthology, Volume V

  1. Texas? I hear the Mexican food there is different from what we devour in SoCal. Congratulations on all the good news. I enjoyed both "Twisty" and "Mapping the Darkness" and look forward to your RPP tale. I'll have something in their winter issue -- almost ToC buddies. May the 4th be with you!
