    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.

    I got an odd FB friend request this morning. Older guy with a white beard. My initial reaction: Creeper. I check these anyway, to laugh. But this guy isn't a creeper. He's connected to 0ccult Det. 1/4ly, which has shortlisted a short story of mine. So now of course I'm wondering...

    (I accepted the friend request)

    Well, there's too many bad ones. I mean, so amateurish! No sense of style or originality at all.

    Don't let it get to that. Seriously. You're awesome.

    One of my favorite people right now, a writer named Mercedes Yardley, says her goal is to get 100 rejections a year. That means she's subbing and that way, a rejection doesn't mean nearly as much because it's in a sea of rejections.

    You're awesome! Don't let a couple of rejections sting you.

    Also, these folks are looking novels. Or rather, they will be, starting August 1st.

    Here's where I'm at with my novella: They haven't even responded to me. Nothing.

    I sent my novella to them on February 21st. They never even acknowledged receiving it.

    I sent a query on May 18th. They never acknowledged that, either.

    Now it's July and I'm done with this crap. I'm going to rescind my submission to them and they can go pack sand.

    Interesting call for subs with a video explaining what he wants in detail. This guy has published a couple of my stories.

    ETA: Here's more info.

    Call for SubmissionsNocturnicorn Books Presents a Cahoots Venture SUPERFREAKS edited by Alex S. Johnson
    Submission requirements: the theme of the book is superheroes, but nothing like you've ever seen. We're not interested in the merely twisted or freaky or dark. We want a radical new look at superbeings. What would Friedrich Nietzsche do in this situation? Give us new morals, new ethics, new adventures and dark dreams for the post-factual age.
    Poetry of any length. Stories between 3 and 8k. Please use standard manuscript format. You may submit as many as five stories and eight poems, but only one poem and one story will be accepted, if accepted.
    Times New Roman 12 Point font, double spaced, contact info in upper left hand corner. Name of story/poem centered with byline.
    Taboos: Sexual situations involving minor children and glorified rape.
    send all works to Trolleydogs@aol.com.
    Deadline: 10/1/17
    reprints will be considered on a case by case basis.
    simultaneous submissions will be considered as long as everybody agrees and is kept in the loop.
    this is a For the Love/Exposure Only venture.

    Send work to Trolleydogs@aol.com.

    Doesn't pay, though, so....whatever.
