This is both one of the best parts of being an editor, and the worst. The best part is that you know that someone has put a lot of work into submitting a story that they are hoping will be published. Telling them that they’ve been accepted is a fabulous feeling. I also know that, as an author, it’s a fabulous feeling to be accepted. The worst part is telling someone that they haven’t been accepted, and tonight I had to work my way through a list and do just that.
I hope that those that have been accepted for Broken Bones are happy, and that those who were rejected continue to write and continue to submit. Just because this editor has said no doesn’t mean that all editors will, nor that this editor won’t say yes to a different story later on.
