Most concurrent submission for my works July 5, 2011

Posted by Tom Wells in Submissions.

July 5th:

I have put out the most concurrent story submissions of my writing career.  As of today I have:

  1. Mother: A story about a deep space NASA probe which has gained artificial intelligence; is still in the hunt for recognition in the Writers of the Future contest.  (Update, this story was a Silver Honorable Mention Winner)(Now submitted to Darwin’s Evolution) Still Pending
  2. Firstfather: When humans have achieved immortality, will they still behave like humans? This story was sent to the Temporarily closed Sci-Fi Short Story Magazine, I have now submitted it to Asimov’s in the hope that the latter will accept the story for the personal tale that just happens to have a Sci-Fi setting. Form Rejection for Asimov’s.  Sent to Daily Science Fiction for consideration.
  3. Twilight on Planet Z is my second submission to the Daily Science Fiction website.  It is another Flash story and I believe this one is stronger than my first submission to this market. Form Rejection.  Started a longer version of this story.
  4. Marooned: I wrote this short story before finishing my novel length manuscript called, The Frontier Express.  The novel is really a prequel to this short story, but of course, you don’t need to have read the novel to get the point of my short.  Marooned has been submitted to the Science Fiction Anthology. The Science Fiction Anthology I submitted this to closed to submission as pre-planned on July 31st.  No reply yet but I am assuming they are now going through the submissions they received before their deadline to decide which ones will make their E-Market publication.

I have more stories than this to submit as I research the markets I think the stories will have the warmest reception.  I’m hoping that I get some of the feedback I wrote about below, even if I don’t have acceptances with these submissions .

Hi Tom – I just wanted to mention that in the future, you should hold off on listing story titles while they’re still in the running at WOTF. It would be a shame to disqualify yourself that way, especially as you’ve done so well this time around!

Thanks and point well taken. I had the same thought this morning after receiving the news about the silver HM nod. That’s why you’re not seeing a title or summary of my Q3 entry.
Thanks also for visiting my new site.
