Still Being Considered

Hi there!

I just wanted to let you know that we narrowed your story submission down to the next phase of our acceptance process. While there is no guarantee that we will be able to ultimately accept it, we are interested in reading it again and giving it additional consideration.

However, this means that it may take longer before we offer a response, OR, it may not be selected for publication. If you'd prefer that we release it immediately, please let us know.

Thank you so much for your patience. I understand how stressful this process can be. If your story is selected for publication elsewhere in the meantime, please notify us

Tim Deal

I know this isn't a guaranteed acceptance, but I'm a tad excited "Sealed With Anguish" didn't automatically get the axe as it has in the past. Now, I go back to crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.

Best of luck with this. The waiting can be excruciating, so don't hold your breath. ;)

Good luck with Shroud. :D

Aaron - Oh, I'm not. Dead doesn't look good on me.

Cate - Thank you!

Even if it doesn't go any further, this is great. I got into a semi final in an Australian spec fiction contest and that was a big deal for me.

If you're interested, you can read ch1 of my novel 'Lethal Inheritance’ (YA fantasy) at
