The World of Myth Magazine was a particularly exciting acceptance because my story was chosen to appear as the “Featured Article” on the front page. Also with this particular magazine, stories are rated/voted on, and the author with the highest GPA of votes gets their story published in an end-of-year anthology, and is interviewed for the magazine’s podcast. So far, my story is in the lead!

Submissions

In the month of May, I submitted 11 different pieces of fiction, 8 of which were accepted within a few days (and were included in my acceptances above). The other three pieces submitted were all to Black Hare Press, for various anthologies of theirs open at the time. I am still waiting to hear back on these, fingers crossed my stories make it in!

Submitted Story: “The Honored One”

Submitted Story: “Feeding the Crows”

Submitted Story: “In the Attic”

That’s it for May. June is shaping up to be a pretty slow month—ten days in, and I’ve only submitted one short story and am only waiting on the three from above to hear back on. But things could always turn around 😉

See you next month!
