One hundred and sixty-one days after submission, Realms of Fantasy passed on my short piece, Korl Builds a Wall.
However, this was not a standard form rejection letter. No, this one came with a handwritten note from Shawana McCarthy, Fiction Editor at RoF. I won’t get into what it said other than to say it was pretty spot on and it came from the editor herself, not the slush pile. That means I’m headed in the right direction.
Not dwelling on it though. Korl is already packaged up and waiting to go out tomorrow to a new market.
