Damn my crystal ball

Okay so I was right, I heard back from Time and Space. It was a quasi-nice personalized rejection letter, saying they liked it but. . .no thank you. So I reformatted the story and sent it off to Apex Digest.

Remarkably I also heard back from Boston Review, although it was on my blog and not in my email, from the publicity guru there. I don't know how he found my blog but I welcome him to read my posts any day he wants. But, other than that, I haven't heard from the 'review' officially. I can guess what their response will be.

I am not making any more predictions, at least for awhile, because they are becoming to frequently true (I won't tell you about what I think of the civil war we are about to have, forget about the grey and the blue, more like blue and red. I may have told you too much already)

Just a second, i have to answer the door, some guys in dark sunglasses and darker suits, talking into their thumbs. I be back in just a second-

Kind of spooky who finds us out there, eh? I keep trying to crack Space and Time, but alas...

I remember reading my uncles copies when I was younger. Much younger. They were mixed in with his playboy collection. I don't know if he has Space and Time anymore.

Sign up with 'statcounter' or 'sitemeter' and you'll find out how a guy from the Boston Review found your blog if he ever visits again. :)

Google Alerts are what keep all us PR guys in the know. Just enter a search term and the Goog' will email you whenever they spider it. Just like ESP.

I'll be a son-of-a-gun. That is pretty slick. I might utilize that esp in the future. Thank you will. Just for fun I might start mentioning Boston Review in all of my posts.

Oh good lord please no. The occasional mention is enough.

Every rejection brings you closer to your next acceptance.

And now I must go fart sunshine elsewhere!

Google Alerts are fabulous, except if your name is generic and there is someone more famous than you that shares it.

I keep getting notifications about this woman from the YMCA.
