A completely unexpected acceptance!

I just got home from work--we're back on our regular semester schedule at work, which means I work ten hours on Tuesdays--and I'm so tired I almost didn't even bother to check my email. I'm glad I did! My story "Meet Mary Sue" has been accepted at Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine! *does many backflips*

I totally 100% did not expect this. I've only sent them a few stories before, but none of them has even passed the first round of readings. My story will appear in issue #40, thus fulfilling one of my unwritten new year's resolutions--get a story into an issue (of any magazine) in the double-digits.

Oh, and I'd link to ASIM but their site seems to be down right now.

WOOT! Congratulations!

Yeah, I'm two subs in and still haven't made it beyond the first round.

Good luck! I'm absolutely flabbergasted, myself.

Thanks! I am still stunned at the acceptance. I keep going back to look at the email because I can't quite believe it.
