WONDERFUL NEWS, NVHASKELL!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!

I am thrilled to hear you will be published in DEEP MAGIC! And with a Silver HM story from this contest! How cool is that? 

Deep Magic had two open calls worth of top tier stories they had to choose from for this issue. The competition was tremendous, and they had a specific goal they were trying to achieve for this set of stories. This was no small win! I'm sorry to see the magazine come to an end, but I'm happy your story got in their last issue. A truly respectable sale for your first! WELL DONE!

And yes, well done for not giving up on your story and continuing to send it out after it got a Silver here. It takes keeping a story in circulation until the right editor and need for that story occurs. Persistence and patience CAN make all the difference! Congrats for not giving up!

You now have a nice credit to add to your cover letters. You've also proven you wrote a story that impressed a very selective board that has some bestselling authors on it. May this sale open many new doors for you!

All the beast!

Wulf Moon

 

 

 

Wulf, Thank you so much!

I had no idea that there were two open calls but assumed the competition was stellar given the quality of the material they publish. But whoa .

I only recently started engaging with the forum more but have been learning so much from the expertise and shared wisdom here for the last year and a half. Thank you for encouraging new writers like myself and imparting your knowledge, I truly believe that what I have gained here helped this story get published.

I woke up this morning to a lovely surprise, my first published story grinning ! It's published today (22 June 2021) in Daily Science Fiction, a site I have subscribed to for a number of years now, so it is crazy seeing something I wrote emailed to me by DSF. Bucket list: publish a story... tick! woohoo

That is a unique approach to storytelling Joel. My wife used the bacon aroma to call me to the kitchen earlier.

Congrats on the sale. clapper

@crlisle I'm really glad you enjoyed it! It's always nice to hear that from someone who is not related to me so is not obligated by blood or marriage to say so laughing

@scribblesatdusk ....    Thanks for reading my story! I'm glad you liked it. I am working on a sequel. And continuing 'The Adventures of Fen the Gnome Ranger. It's difficult to make the stories stand alone, so the next one is not fit for submission to WotF.

So... umm... I just found out I made finalist in the Baen Fantasy Adventure Awards, you guys. oooooo It's not a guaranteed win, by any means, but do I consider it a success? Absolutely.

My head feels like it's about to explode. laughing

I had my first English-language short-story published in HyphenPunk (a new zine about everything, well, punk) just two weeks ago.

It was rejected more than 40 times in the span of a year. It lost contests, was critiqued at critters.org, was read by paid beta-readers, discussed on discord servers...and it's finally out! What a trip. Talk about stubborn! 😝 😝 I'm very proud about this story. It has a message that had to be passed, and it will make life better for the ones who endure to read through it!

In for V38 Q3 and Q4.
