    Horror Markets?

    It seems a lot of magazines that publish short horror are on backlog. And there aren't a lot of magazines that seem to publish short fiction without being an established writer anymore. An endless struggle this seems. -Endless

    6 Rejections And Counting

    Recently got my 6th rejection letter. This is the second time this magazine has rejected me - different story both times. I hate that this place is like the New Yorker and just gives such cold rejections. I can't expect warm ones every time and from what I hear I've been given...

    I've already written three books.

    Two are in a series, with my longtime friend, and the third is all me. I want one of them to get published so badly!

    The Quickest Rejection Yet

    This place only took a week to send my story around to four editors who all said no. Eight more will give me 16 and I will then learn to play "Hospital Roll Call" on the guitar and sing it like Lanegan. I'm starting to feel the discouragement at 7 rejections...

    Never Enough.

    I quote this Cure song all the time to my boyfriend when he jokingly accuses me of being high maintenance. The rejection slips I've received are either flat and cold or are telling me they just don't have enough space. There's never enough space. -Endless Meghan

    Already Am

      In fact, I usually have something published at least once a month.  What I'd really like, though, it have something that finds its way to the New York Times bestseller list.
