      1. Nah, I was gonna ask who, what, where, so his comment saved me time on asking and you having to respond.
        It sounds really intriguing. Now the question is: Do I have any time that I can allocate towards this? I like submitting original work and not re-fried beans. We shall see. I printed it out and will keep in mind.

  1. I’m known in my local writing group for having more rejection letters than anyone else. It would really be an honor to break my losing streak with this, and if I am rejected I’ll probably still buy a copy of the anthology when it’s available and keep trying. So wins all around.

    1. Rejections certainly don’t feel good, but they are so subjective, you can’t put too much weight in them.
      Give it a shot. Last I heard from the publisher is that it’s filling up fast, so don’t wait too long.
