Rejections #155, 156, 157, 158, 159, 160 – Ninth Letter, Juked, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Mixer, Chizine, The Collagist

Kinda bummed about the rejection from Beneath Ceaseless Skies – I really want in there.  Well, next time.  The editor liked the story, but found there were too many modern elements to fit in with the magazine.  Know your markets, I guess.

Steven Owen, Editor at Mixer Publishing, had a number of nice things to say about the piece I submitted, but ultimately found the characterization of the main character too sentimental.  An interesting critique and not one I can recall getting before, so I’m considering in some depth what he meant.

The editors at Chizine consider my story interesting and well-written, but not for them, after consideration.

Ninth Letter is sorry the submission isn’t for them.

Juked appreciated the read, but are sorry to say they won’t be able to use the piece.

The Collagist is unable to use the fiction I submitted.  So unable, in fact, that their auto-responder sent me the same email twice.
