Sale to New Fables!

My story "Bearskin" will appear in the third issue of New Fables, out this summer. That's a nice surprise! So far for 2009 I have zero rejections and one acceptance, although I'm sure that will change very soon.

Mundania has had The Weredeer for 401 days according to Duotrope's count. That's not the longest I've waited to hear back about a book, but it's getting there.

congrats on your acceptance/rejections ratio for the year. I saw the acceptance this morning before I logged on here. I was impressed. I should only be so lucky.

Jeremy Kelly said...

Congratulations!

And just so you know, I too shall read 50 books in 2009!

Jamie--thanks! If I had more stories out my ratio would probably be a lot different. Right now I think I've only got like two out.

Jeremy--thanks! I bet you beat me on the 50 books easily. I'm not doing so good so far. :)

Congratulations. If you stop right now, you're batting 1,000.

But don't stop.

K.C. Shaw said...

So...tempted...to...STOP!

CONGRATULATIONS!

And maybe this will be a rejection free year - I mean someone somewhere in all these centuries must have had one right?

Rob Brooks said...

Congrats on the sale. 401 days is a pretty long time. I've got a story out now for over a year, but not 400 days yet. And who knows ho wmuch longer you may ahve to go?

K.C. Shaw said...

Cate--Somehow I don't think this will be a rejection-free year. Well, unless I stop submitting anything at all, and Aaron tells me I can't do that.

Rob--Thanks! I really should hear from them soon (in fact, I should have already heard from them) because they sent me an email three weeks ago saying they were making their final selections within two weeks. If I don't hear anything by February I'll drop them an email, I guess. I've already emailed twice (in the last 401 days) to make sure I didn't miss their response, so I hate to bug them again.

Congratulations!

You should have some pie. You've earned it!

K.C. Shaw said...

Mmmm, pie. You're right, I deserve 9,000 words of pie!
