Three Honorable Crows

3CP_writer

Three Crow Press have accepted my short story ‘The Forest of Sepia Children’ for the first issue of the Morrigan Books E-Zine.

I also received today what has to be the nicest rejection possible from Allegory for ‘Rosalind Red Stands in the Snow’ – the story didn’t make it into January’s issue but will be listed on the honorable mention page. The good thing about rejections is they give me an excuse to play on Duotrope and to ignore my troublesome WIP.

I also got the NO from Allegory. And, like yours, it was the nicest rejection I ever received.

Congrats on the Morrigan sale!

I saw on GT that your story didn't make it either and was a little disappointed as I'd hoped one of us would get in.

That's awesome news about Three Crow Press! I was so hoping to come up with a submission there because they are just amazing, but alas.

I do love the nice rejections. Takes all the sting right out of it.

I love Morrigan Books too. :)

Cool acceptance. Way to go Cate! (50% is still nothing to sneeze at, unless you are still sick) :)

Cheers, Jamie.

All recovered now - though I'm trying to convince myself I'm still ill so that I don't have to write. :)

Congrats on the sale. That is wonderful news. You are a writing machine. I think the theft and reappropriation of your mojo might be in order.

Congrats on the sale, and once again, it's another fabulous title.

I could waste so much time on Duotrope. Any time I hit a roadblock, it's one of my first stops...

Congrats again Cate. Crows are very honorable birds.

Congrats on the acceptance! And an honorable mention for the other story is pretty cool too.
