I finally heard back from Tom Moran over at Black Ink Horror yesterday afternoon. As is his style it was personalized, commenting on what he thought worked well and what needed some work. I didn't feel too bad. I had sent him one of the first stories that I had written when I got back in the groove of things and he seemed to like it just fine. Just not enough to take for the mag. Somewhere between when I sent him the story and he sent a response the response got lost in the black hole of the internet (I think that yahoo mail and gmail are incompatible species) so he claims to have sent it too me much earlier than yesterday but I couldn't find hide nor hair of it in my account.
Not the first time. Won't be the last.
Anyway, He isn't accepting new stories until October 1 and then he opens back up for submissions again. Good editor, nasty drawings to go along with the stories.
hope to hear some good news in the next couple of weeks. hopefully and acceptance to something, anything.
It is here that I was going to post a Calvin and Hobbs cartoon but I began to think about copywrites and thought better of it so I will just post the link http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes.
