It still happens even when you are published.
Heard from the editor from Samhain and they don't want Sinful. No explanation. Just the usual form rejection, "not right for us" type. Oh well. I guess the avenue is closed. I was told I could submit something to her in the future, but honestly I don't think I will have anything for them any time soon.
On the positive side, I am no longer waiting to hear. No need for email stalking!
Which will bring me back to having to expand the word length, etc..
In other news, I am working on The Other Side right now. It isn't the one due first to AQ, but it seemed to be the one calling to me the most.
