My first published story appeared just about a year ago. Since then, according to this little tracker site I use, I’ve had approximately 36 stories rejected, and I’ve had nine accepted. Also sold the film rights to The Cratch to Fancy Rhino, which was a nice surprise.
Six are out there now: two in Flash Fiction Online, two in Space Squid, and one in Schlock. Three more stories forthcoming in Daily Science Fiction, Sci Phi Journal, and The Cafe Irreal.
Still no luck with longform stories, though. I have five of them and they’ve gone nowhere. That’s the goal for 2016; to sell one of those.
