A quick note on 2012 AD

I noticed on Severed Press's website that they were temporarily closed to submissions on their 2012 AD antho. I shot off a quick e-mail to the editors asking what was going on and that I would post their response here.

Here is what they said: We have temporarily closed 2012 AD to restructure the submission guidelines. The description we provided is too broad and the submissions we received so far are barely, if it all, related to the Maya. This is our own fault, and hopefully by relaying our expectations more clearly, we will be able to get 2012 AD back on track. The concept of the Maya predictions are both interesting and timely. We still believe it would make a great Anthology. I apologize if you have started an original piece specifically for 2012 AD, but feel free to submit it anyway and we'll keep you posted.

I still haven't heard back from them so I don't know what that means for my piece or anyone else who may have sent them something and hasn't heard back.

Until later, have a good weekend.

Editors really seem to respond if they think they can get the message out to more than one person.

Thanks for the update. I hadn't started anything for this one yet.

Oh, I didn't realize they wanted Maya-themed end-of-the-world, although that makes sense with the title. Thanks for the info!

DRAT! This most likely means that mine will assuredly be returning.

I am kind of thinking the same thing. Mine was based on the actual calendar so I don't know.
