Sale - Again!

Whoa, so after six months of no sales I've suddenly sold two stories less that two weeks apart!

This latest sale is called 'Hidden Folders' and it was picked up by Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. Robots and racism and trouble on Mars. Not a funny story, as they usually print at ASIM, but it's a story I've believed in for a long time.

Hidden Folders also sold once before to a magazine that folded before printing the story. So I knew it had some merit - I just didn't know who else would pick it up. I'll be happy to see it in issue 60 of ASIM.

Congratulations on this one too! I've often found that acceptances cluster together. A bit like buses.

Thanks :-) It's fortunate that the time between bus clusters is usually a bit shorter. Sales I can wait for.

Thank you :-) I didn't realize how long I've been sending them stories until you mentioned that they're a hard market. Turns out I first subbed there in 2005.

Perseverence!

'A Rain of Sales'. Sounds like something George R.R. Martin would write.
