Asimov Bounce

Driving home from work Friday, and I just knew I was going to get a reply back from Asimov's for "Romeo, Unbound" in the mail. Rejectomancy being what it is, my instincts were up to speed, and I did get a reply. Just not the one I wanted.

Since I missed the deadline for WotF, which was June 30, I decided to try Baen's Universe. So the story's going to get tied up for a while again. At least I've got a few months before the September deadline for WotF.

If it bounces both places, I'll have to start looking at viable semi-pro markets or whether I need to trunk the piece. It's such a bummer writing stuff that people don't want to buy. Especially when each project ends up being a longer piece, either novel length or a mosaic made from shorter works.

Such is the other side of the writing life.

Baen's is closed right now, isn't it?

Sorry to spoil your breakfast by shifting you through the space-time continuum so suddenly. :-)
