Anyone know any tricks for Asimovs? I'm in my third month here waiting for a reply on a submission sent near the end of March. While I'm resigned to the fact that the writing business is a slow business, usually, it's so easy to grow old waiting for replies. Especially when you're trying to break into the business and postal rates went up in May and you know you put the right 39¢ postage for a reply on the March submission. Sigh.

Depending on response times, submission methods, and pay I'll try to structure what I send out and when, working my way down through the appropriate markets. I'm still on the pro circuit for this story, and I hadn't pinged Asimovs yet.

As for e-subs only ... I just sent a story off to Interzone on the tail end of their open period. For all I know I'm number 499 of the 499 they received during May. :-)

Personally, I preferred to receive snail submissions when I was working for Marsdust. It was my theory (completely unproven and my opinion) that email submissions opened the door to quick, raw submissions. You still got those through snail mail, but since there was money involved from postage, people were less likely to dash an unfinished and raw story.
