My First Publication Rejection | HOME SWEET HOME

SuccessDespiteFailure2.inddThey say everyone gets rejected on their first attempt at publication. Naturally, I thought I might be an exception to the rule, but that was not the case:

Dear Damien,

Thank you for submitting “HOME SWEET HOME,” but I’m afraid I’m going to pass on it. Best of luck to you placing this one elsewhere, and thanks again for thinking of us!

Thank you, Seanan, for considering it! I am glad that I found the fortitude to take a chance and submit an original story.

Now, I’m not sure if I will release the story as a one-off, or merge its plot into my larger Galaxy story. I’m not sure it’s ready to be my first published work, and I definitely want THE CLIMB to be that. Maybe I’ll publish the short story here on my blog in anticipation of GALAXY one day.

Once again, THANK YOU, to those who read and edited my story.
