Happy New Year to Me!!!


It's wonderful to wake up the first of the New Year to this in my inbox:

Thank you for submitting your story to“In the Waves Electric Spec. The editors have reviewed it and decided to hold it for voting. We anticipate making our final selection of stories for our February 2010 issue in early February. We will notify you as soon as a final decision has been made.

[redacted], Editor
Electric Spec

It's not an official acceptance letter. I'm well aware of the caliber of stories in the 'zine and I know this isn't a sure thing. But it's so much better than a rejection letter!

And, since I'm still waiting to hear from five other 'zines, I'm optimistic. Even if the editors at Electric Spec decide to pass, they liked it enough to reread the story. So maybe someone else will like it enough to buy the story.

P.S. Yes, several of you will notice that the title was changed before I sent the short out. The original title kind of gave away the ending. :o)


  1. Congrats on the interest. It's nice to know that it's in the running.
