My first published story for 2007 appears in the very first issue of the new literary magazine La Fenetre. The Purple Rose, a Glimmer Train Press award-finalist, can be read online or in the print-edition of the magazine.
Hora hora! Or something.
Flip the coin. And you'll find that I've recieved FOUR rejections within a few days. Two from Glimmer Train, one from Gold Dust magazine, and Hub magazine. Lee Harris, the editor of Hub, tells me that "Your story (that being A Sheep Called Marlon) was shortlisted from our slushpile but was not selected for publication. There was a lot we liked about the story but it was felt that it did not quite fit into our forthcoming lineup."
Well, at least they liked it. Right? Right?
