"My Mother's Banshee" came back from Shimmer with a "no".

At least they didn't say "you might go read our latest issue" like they did last time (when I sent "No Picnic" which I was pretty sure was not really their style of story).

And now I'm a little stuck on where to send "My Mother's Banshee" next. It's flash, so that does create some limits. Some places I could send it already have a story submitted.

Looks like I need to expand my scope of where to send stories, especially with respect to non-SFWA-qualifying (aka "semi-pro") markets. Time to hit Duotrope and/or Ralan and/or Calls For Submission Facebook group and/or "where other people have sent stories".

  • Thu, 07:40: A story submission comes back "no". A story goes out to another place. That is the way it works for a story. ("Stories out" count is at 7)

"My Mother's Banshee" got a "no" from Apex Magazine. It seemed like a "standard no".

It went back out, to Shimmer.

The "Race Count" (how many stories are out in submission) is at 7 (seven):
- "Padre" (at Third Order, and I need to query them)
- "Green Tears on Black Velvet" (at Escape Pod, as a reprint)
- "The Dybbuk's Moll" (at Andromeda Spaceways)
- "Once We Were Buddies" (at Strange Horizons)
- "No Picnic" (at Abyss & Apex)
- "A Mind of Its Own" (at AE Sci Fi)
- "My Mother's Banshee" (at Shimmer)

Good luck, stories!
