    After two years, TWO YEARS!, since I submitted the story, I got a reply from this anthology.

    "Oh, sorry, our project got pushed back because of other things, and thanks for submitting, but we're going to pass."

    Then...

    "Hey! I know we said we were passing, but I really liked your story and I want you to hold onto it for another week in case one of our other authors doesn't respond!"

    I let them know the story was still available, even though it had been shopped around more.

    "I'm glad it's still available! Give me 24 hours and I'll get back to you! Your story perfectly matches the cover art we got in!"

    24 hours, no reply. 48 hours, no reply, sent a little inquiry.

    "Hey, I just re-read your story again, and we are going to pass on it after all. Thanks!"

    Mother-fucking god-damn teasing pieces of bastard.........

    That sucks, man. That really sucks.

    I'm sorry.

    I need to get subs off today and I'm sick. I can barely function.

    Ugh, Shaun. Teasing like that sucks. I went through a similar thing recently with a company who owns two publications. Subbed to one. Got shortlisted. Then rejected (after a looong time). But, they recommended I sub to their other pub because they liked the story, just didn't feel it was a right fit for that specific pub. So, I subbed to their sister pub and got shortlisted. Then after a looooong time got rejected.
