Novel query

ESP has now had my novel submission for 6 months now (as long as my short story career). They estimate 3-6 months for submission replies I sent off a query today. They estimate another 1-3 months to reply to queries.
With the geological pace maintained by the industry, I'll be published in no time!


I finished a new flash piece (story that's less than 1000 words). This is the shortest I've written, only 600 words. It's off to Asimov's and that makes 18!

Analog submission lost

The Analog excitement was for naught. Either the submission or the reply got lost in the mail.

Analog Submission in Promising Territory

I have some hopeful news. I have a submission that's now been at Analog longer than any of the rejections listed on the statistics sites I use: Duotrope, Ralan, and Submitting to the Black Hole.
That could mean that the Dr. Stanley Schmidt (the editor of Analog) is giving it a second look. Or it could mean my manuscript got mangled in a mail sorter in the post office way back in October. Only time will tell...
