So this was March 2020

1 Apr

I’ve made 120 new submissions. 95 rejections. 6 acceptances. 1 withdrawn, 0 not received.


36 Hours In The Space Force sold to B Cubed Press, Jan 20th 2020.
My Summer Holiday, By Billy Mesner (Aged 5) sold to Trouble Among the Stars, Jan 20th 2020.
Fillers was accepted by Again, Hazardous Imaginings, Feb 20th, 2020.
Mushnik’s Guitar sold to Aphotic Realm, Feb 21st, 2020.
The Shaming sold to Tell-Tale Press; Nebu Carnvale, 28th Feb, 2020.
A story was sold to a market on 22nd Mar, 2020. I can’t say any more yet.

There are currently 37 stories out in submission:-

Normally there would be a screengrab showing what’s out in submission here. Due to circumstances beyond my control, that won’t be happening this month. I actually wasn’t going to release an update blog at all this month because of that, but decided it wasn’t fair on my followers. My advice, also follow me on Twitter @RayDaleyWriter & you’ll always get the details of what has been rejected & when. I’m not saying you could use that info to work out which story I sold & where to, but you totally could.

When I get more solid dates on the to be confirmeds, I’ll announce them.


I’ve still got 9 stories left to hear back from the January Submission Challenge. There are also still 4 stories outstanding from the original September Challenge!
Tuck & Roll in Automobilia is still on-going.
Fillers won’t be appearing in Again, Hazardous Imaginings. I was asked to do a full rewrite which I wasn’t prepared to do, especially after being told “yours is the best thus far and the most fitting for the anthology’s theme.”

As you can see, I did make a sale recently. I haven’t been given permission to announce it yet, this is why there’s no “out in submission” screenshot. Sorry about that. As I say, beyond my control. I have to respect the publishers wishes.
