This has been a three-rejection week, which is always a bummer. My stories for the Economic Security Project/Into the Black contest and the Trouble the Waters and Guilds and Glaives anthologies did not make their respective cuts.
I just sent another story out, though, to Abyss & Apex magazine’s reading period. Keep on keeping on!
Additionally, I missed noting here that while the story kept for further consideration at Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores was rejected, they did invite me to revise and resubmit it at their next reading period, with feedback for the revisions. So I will definitely be doing that. It’s pretty rare to get that sort of feedback and invitation, so it’s a bit of encouragement to hold on to when a bad week rolls through.
