    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 am thinking about it,

    let's say. I have, been thinking about it, but now, I see it as a possibility. Of course, it would be in French. For now at least. That said, I am, cautious, entering the world of publishers. I sent, to few different kind of houses, my very first draft (of the book I'd like to...

    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...

    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.

    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
