From the Asylum

I just got an email from Katherine Sanger over at 'From the Asylum.' I had queried her last month and she got back to me. I am only sharing this because I know that many of you also have stories out with them. She let me know that they are still in business, despite the lack of activity on their website. She said that the hurricanes in the area last month put them further behind than they ever expected to be and that most of us could expect to hear back from them in three months if not sooner. She apologized profusely for the delay and expects things to be back up and running soon.

I hope that this puts many of you at ease, especially those of you that have had stories out for quite a while at this point (mine has been out since February 16)

Sorry for the second post today but I thought many of you would want to know.

Another update, I am on my second pot (not cup, but pot) of coffee today and am being quite productive. I have written more in the last twenty minutes than I have in the six days prior. Mark the re-write god is shining on me today! :)

Thanks for that Jamie, I'm one of the nervously-biting-her-nails brigade.

Cate- I thought you might be. I know there are a couple of us waiting patiently (Ha!)

I got an email too. Fingers crossed that our stories make the cut!

After all the coffee I have been drinking this morning about everything is crossed. Would be fun if all of us got into one issue.

So Mark loves coffee sacrifices. Good to know, and I've got my fingers crossed for you on that submission.

Jamie, a few people have heard back today (1 acceptance and 2 rejections that I know off) - fingers crossed for you.

I noticed one rejection on Duotrope but I haven't heard back. If I do it will be the one that is 243 days out. Thank you for the update.
