Email explosion

February 23, 2010

Lots going on and it all seems to be happening through email.  I’ve gotten about fifteen legitimate emails today.  A couple from WotF (which I perpetuated more of by being an incompetent replier), one from Clarion West (just clearing up an application issue, no real news or anything), several asking advice, and some family emails regarding funeral arrangements for my great uncle.  I’m not used to that kind of attention.  Sometimes I wait weeks for an email from anyone other than Amazon or PayPal.

Yesterday I finally got my copies of Beyond Centauri with my story “Brother Goo” in it.  It’s a nice small press magazine with fiction aimed at kids 8-18.  That’s a wide range and it’s tough to hit.  I’m very happy with the magazine and “Brother Goo” fits right in.  It’s basically K-Pax for kids.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the issue.

Still waiting on verdicts for several submissions.  Weird Tales is over their advertised response time but still under their Duotrope average reported time.  Of course Anne VanderMeer is their editor and she’s part of the Clarion selection committee as part of the anchor leg duo (with husband Jeff), so I won’t complain much.  Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine has never taken this long to look at my slush story, either.  Things get slow sometimes and I of all people understand.  I have a couple other pieces out and waiting.  Waiting is the toughest part of writing.
