While my mind is being blown over here, I have a couple of things to share. I sold "When the Dead Decide to Disco" to Every Day Fiction and it will be out either next month or the month after. I'll know more when they announce the Table of Contents for May.
If the timing seems odd because of my new podcast duties, let me assure you that my access to EDF is completely superficial. I only deal with stories that have already been published -- I have no interactions with slush or the backend database. And I submitted this story 147 days ago--including a requested rewrite last month. All of this happened long before I agreed to volunteer.
I hope that doesn't sound overly defensive. I just want to be clear that the EDF team is very good about maintaining a separation between the two areas to avoid conflicts of interest.
All that said, I'm super excited to share this story with you. It was a fun one to write.
This week I finished revising a short story and submitted it to a new market so that's good. Also a few days ago I added up my numbers for 2012 and here are my stats since January 1: 10 submissions (only includes new subs sent since Jan 1), 8 rejections, 3 acceptances and 3 publications (pubs does not include "When the Dead...").
