Well this is as close as I have ever been. (So far……) Last month I submitted two short stories to two different anthologies. One was one of my biker stories, one was a brand new story. Both collections are still accepting submissions, and everyone knows that writers always wait till the last minute to submit their work.
Anyway I contacted the editors of both collections just to see how things are rolling.
Both editors told me my work is currently sitting on the short list. (to be included) However it is still an open call, and there are no guarantees. So……
As long as no REAL authors show up…… I have a chance ate getting at least two of my stories published.
There is still almost a month till the send out acceptance / rejection letters. Have you ever crossed your fingers for a month?
