Just as I don't blog about rejection much anymore, I usually don't write about acceptances. But, there are always exceptions.
I received word yesterday from R. Scott McCoy that "The Distillery" was accepted for Necrotic Tissue (#10, April 2010). Whew. I subbed that bad boy on the first day possible (July 1st) and nibbled my poor digits to bloody nubs ever since receiving the "short list" notification. Necrotic Tissue has become a very competitive market--I landed my first sale with them back in April of '08 and failed to replicate that success since. So whew.
And most importantly, thanks to those out there who helped make "The Distillery" as horrid as possible. A big, wet spinal-pop to you all. No one can do this writing thing without huge support from awesome peers. Like I wrote yesterday, some of the nicest folks I know are horror writers.
