01:01 am - It Was A Nice Streak....

I managed to sell six erotica stories in a row before I finally met with a rejection.  Six.  In a row.  I'm still amazed I got that far.  What started as a "why the hell not?" turned into an ever-more-baffling series of successes, and it only came to a halt because the seventh one didn't quite fit the mood of the anthology compared to the stories already selected.

Can't exactly complain too much, under the circumstances.  

Now, if I could only achieve this same sort of success with the mainstream writing.

For the curious, you can see the full list of acceptances here.

On to the next project.

Lol, am I the only Circlet editor to reject you?

And wow, six stories? That's awesome. Congratulations!

Yes. You broke the streak. And you admitted it out loud.
Avoid black cats, ladders, and mirrors.
Just to be on the safe side. :)

Thanks for the kind words. After 6 stories to 5 different editors at two publishers (plus the super sekrit bonus project which I will announce to the public someday, I was starting to wonder if I was the target of an elaborate prank.

P.S. Check your e-mail.

You obviously do something that (most) folks at Circlet like. Cool!
