Summing Up The January Submission Challenge!

1 Feb

I’m not just going to say what was subbed where & what was rejected by who on which day, I’ll also give running daily stats & talk about what else happened as the month went on.


Today’s market was Fantasy & Science Fiction. I started the year with a story publication too! Aether & Ichor published A Tooth fairy Dreams… in their final issue.

01-Fluid State to F&SF,
Previous Iterations to Kanstellation,
I Hide Behind Cardboard Cliffs And Polystyrene Rocks to Cossmass Infinities.
No=0, Yes=0, Sub=3.


Today’s market was Clarkesworld. I had to bump Space & Time up the list too as they brought their closing date forward. This would prove to be annoying later in the month. We discovered 87 Bedford was closed today as well. You’ll see what problems that causes shortly too.

02-Scenario Twelve to Space & Time.
The Witch In The Fog to Clarkesworld Magazine.
No from Space and Time on The Sex Lives Of Robots.
No=1, Yes=0, Sub=5.


Today’s market was Daily Science Fiction. No issues submitting there, thankfully.

03-No from F&SF on Fluid State.
Monster to Daily Science Fiction,
Nightwing Fucks Shit Up to F&SF.
No=2, Yes=0, Sub=7.


Today’s market was Sirius Science Fiction. Totally fine submitting here. A good solid market.

04-No from James Gunn’s Ad Astra on House, Or Home.
No from F&SF on Nightwing Fucks Shit Up.
Nightwing Fucks Shit Up to Interzone.
One Of Us Is Lying to Sirius Science Fiction,
One Night Stand to Mythic.
No=4, Yes=0, Sub=10.


Today’s market was 87 Bedford, which was closed. After a bit of a scramble, I found Strange Constellations WAS open, thankfully.

05-Weird Old Wullie to Strange Constellations,
Starliner Down to F&SF.
No=4, Yes=0, Sub=12.


Today’s market was Strange Constellations. Guess who I subbed to the previous day? I found an anthology call open and subbed there. I also subbed to Infinite Worlds Magazine, because the anthology wasn’t a paying call.

06-No from Clarkesworld on The Witch In The Fog.
Bodge Job to Infinite Worlds Magazine,
Mushnik’s Guitar to Aphotic Realm’s Interstellar; Horror Among the Stars.
No=5, Yes=0, Sub=14.


Today’s market was Agni. I subbed there. On the right day.

07-No from F&SF on Starliner Down.
Stranding Room Only to F&SF.
Salvation to Agni.
No=6, Yes=0, Sub=16.


Today’s market was Visions. I couldn’t sub here because they were closed. So I subbed a horror piece from the  horror market list I’d also created. I’d made it, so why not use it, right?

08-Ghost Tour to Dark Moon Digest.
No=6, Yes=0, Sub=17.


Today’s market was The Overcast. Hooray for a day with no problems submitting there.

09-Two Little Birds to The Arcanist,
She, Of The Tribeless to The Overcast.
Timeshare to Hybrid Ink; Small Loves.
No=6, Yes=0, Sub=20.


Today’s market was Trouble Among The Stars. They were placed on this day as their closure deadline was imminent.

10-No from F&SF on Stranding Room Only,
My Summer Holiday, By Billy Mesner (Aged 5) to Trouble Among the Stars
& The Healer to F&SF.
No=7, Yes=0, Sub=22.


Today’s market was Constellary Tales. They were closed.  I had this market in reserve though.

11-They Who Dare to Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award.
No=7, Yes=0, Sub=23.


Today’s market was Electric Spec. Their deadline was looming, so I’d placed them here for that reason. My 2nd story of the year was published today. “It Takes A Dragon…” went live at Flash Fiction Magazine.

12-Total Immersion to Electric Spec.
No=7, Yes=0, Sub=24.


Today’s market was Strange Horizons. You can only sub here on a certain day between certain times. The hoops you have to leap through JUST to submit a fucking story.

13-No from F&SF on The Healer,
Fair King, Fell Low to Strange Horizons,
The Healer to Clarkesworld.
No=8, Yes=0, Sub=26.

The Age Of Chivalry to Every Day Fiction,
Shoulder Surfers to Forge Literary Magazine.
No=10, Yes=0, Sub=28.

On Common Ground to Flash Fiction Online,
Say Again, Over to F&SF.
No=16, Yes=0, Sub=36.


Today’s market was Metaphorosis Magazine. I’ll be honest, I didn’t want to sub there because of the way they make you format a story to such an exact way. In the end I just did it anyway. Tell-Tale Press were closed for general subs, Andrea invited me to sub to her anthology call. Well, I wangled an invitation. Right place, right time.

19-No from Black Static on The Uninvited.
Sidekicks to Metaphorosis,
The Shaming to Tell-Tale Press; Nabu Carnevale,
Ballroom to Tell-Tale Press; Nabu Carnevale,
& The Dionesian Wave to Tell-Tale Press; Nabu Carnevale.
No=17, Yes=0, Sub=40.


Today’s market was Mithila Review. First sale of the month! 36 Hours In The Space Force was sold to B Cubed Press. I actually made 2 sales on this day but didn’t get permission to announce the 2nd sale right away hence not announcing it here.

20-No from F&SF on Say Again, Over.
No from B Cubed Press on Volunteers Needed.
36 Hours In The Space Force was sold to B Cubed Press.
The War Machines to Mithila Review,
Say Again, Over to Aggregate.
No=19, Yes=1, Sub=42.


Today’s market was Space & Time. I’d already had to bump it up the list to get in before they shut, so there was a bit of looking around for an open paying market today.

21-No from Clarkesworld on The Healer,
no from Cossmass Infinities on Cardboard Cliffs.
The Man Who Borrowed My Clock to Planet Scumm,
Assessment to Curiosities.
Volunteers Needed! to Space Force; Building a Legacy.
No=21, Yes=1, Sub=45.


Today’s market was Asimovs. I was also given permission to announce my 2nd sale of the year! My Summer Holiday, By Billy Mesner (Aged 5) was sold to Trouble Among the Stars on Jan 20th. As I knew I wasn’t going to be submitting to Analog on the 26th, I moved Asimov’s to there.

22-The Ripples Of Time to F&SF,
Stray Kids Come Back to Hybrid Fiction.
My Summer Holiday, By Billy Mesner (Aged 5) SOLD to Trouble Among the Stars.
No from Metaphorosis on Sidekicks,
no from Newfound on The Very Next Best Thing To Being There,

25-Grandmothers Shoes to Three-lobed Burning Eye,
Top Field Tanks to All Worlds Wayfarer.
No=27, Yes=2, Sub=52.


Today’s market was Analog. I already had a piece there, and knew they had a backlog of at least 4-5 months so I used Asimov’s instead. I also pitched a couple of stories to Andrea Dawn at Tell-Tale & she said go ahead, send them, so I did.

26-The Burning Towers to Tell-Tale Press Nabu Carnevale
& Exactly The Wrong Shade Of Green to Tell-Tale Press Nabu Carnevale.
Starliner Down to Asimovs.
No=27, Yes=2, Sub=55.


Today’s market was The Weird And Whatnot. Couldn’t sub here today because their web domain had expired, so another scramble for open markets.

27-No from Asimov’s on Starliner Down.
Stranding Room Only to Clarkesworld,
The Uninvited to Tales to Terrify
& Caught Red-Handed to Interzone.
No=28, Yes=2, Sub=58.


Today’s market was Liquid Imagination. Guess who closed early? They did, leaving me yet ANOTHER scramble for somewhere open. It’s a good job I’ve got over 500 finished stories to sub, isn’t it?

28-No from Clarkesworld on Stranding Room Only.
Second Site to F&SF,
The Death Of Tony Fashion to Flash Bang Mysteries.
No=29, Yes=2, Sub=60.


Today’s market was Not One Of Us. They were open, I subbed there.

& no from Analog on Body Banks.

no from Interzone on Caught Red-Handed.
The Sex Lives Of Robots to The Weird and Whatnot,
Wizard Of The Day to Silver Blade Magazine.
No=34, Yes=2, Sub=63.


Today’s market was Timeworn Literary Journal. I didn’t feel I had anything which fitted their requirements, so went insane and subbed to several places. Thanks to an email reminding me Compelling were open, I subbed there as one of them.

31-Starliner Down to Compelling,
Idiots Of The Underworld to F&SF,
Simon Says to Interzone
& Bizarre Life Triangle to Tales from the Moonlit Path.
No from Interzone on Simon Says.
No=35, Yes=2, Sub=67.


So over 31 days I submitted 67 stories in total. Had 35 rejections. Sold 2.

Comparing this to the September 2019 Challenge, over 30 days, a total of 56 stories were submitted. I received 20 rejections and made 1 sale.

I submitted more, sold more, and got more rejections. Obviously I still have a lot of stories still out there.

What’s next? I’ve already made the decision to run the challenge again in May of 2020.

If you took part, I hope you achieved everything you wanted to. If that was to sub 31 stories, I hope that happened. If it didn’t, heck, it’s not a complete disaster. However many stories you got out, it’s better than none. Congratulations to those who made sales, or make sales when your replies finally come in. If you decide to join me in May, I’ll be happy to have you along for the ride again. If you take part for the first time, I’ll be just as happy to see you on my crazy train.

Remember the hashtag #SubmissionChallenge

Ray Daley @RayDaleyWriter

A quick catch-up & apology

28 Jan

SORRY!

I’ve been doing the January Submision Challenge and it has been taking up most of my time. Not just the actual submission part of the event, but having to find new markets on the fly, picking extra stories and geting them ready then putting them out.

A few of my markets closed early, one  web domain expired (Hopefully that’ll get sorted soon) but there were a few days where I had to scramble to pick new markets then choose stories appropriate to their wants & guidelines.

I’m not going to reveal any stats info in this post, obviously, I want you to read my “So This Was January 2020…” and “Summing Up The January Submission Challenge” posts, which may end up both being the same thing.

I haven’t completed any new stories yet this year. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to, but my focus is more based on submissions again, like last year.

There’s plenty going on. Stick around to find out what that is.

I’ll be posting again Feb 1st, catch up with you then.

January 2020 Submission Challenge update

27 Oct

ANNOUNCEMENT!

Next year in January I am going to be submitting at least 1 story every day for the entire month.

If you’d like to join me in this attempt, the markets are listed below. Obviously you’ll need at least 31 pieces of SF (flash & short stories) written & ready to sub. If you are a Science Fiction writer who really wants to start subbing stories or already are, why not take the challenge?

UPDATE:- You may have noticed I removed Tell-Tale Press from both lists. Andrea has advised me she’ll be closing Dec 31st ’19 until May 31st ’20.

I’ve removed Anotherealm from both lists. While they are open all year round to subs, their only reading period is Oct-Nov & I have no wish to make people wait so long to hear back from a sub made in January, hence their removal.

I won’t be doing any further alterations to the list after Dec 15th ’19.

_________________________________________________________________________

This year I am also offering horror writers the chance to take part. I’ve sourced 24 different markets, as below. I’ve checked them all, they either take horror or speculative fiction covering the horror genre. The same rules as above apply here, you can sub to Black Static as soon as you get rejection, likewise F&SF.

Unless I’ve stated to get in quickly or put an early deadline, most of these markets can be passed over or moved down to the bottom of the list in favour of a market with a fast turnaround like Black Static or F&SF. I’ve spoken to Charlie Finlay, editor of F&SF and he’s fine taking horror stories.

SPARES:-https://publishedtodeath.blogspot.com/2018/05/mega-list-of-paying-markets-for-horror.html
This link is a huge post of horror markets compiled in 2018. Some of them may no longer exist. If you use this, be sure to check the market is still open & is actually paying! Thanks to Erica Verrillo for making this list.
_________________________________________________________________________

It’s your job to read the guidelines & work out what kind of story to send each market. I’ve given you the links. Make sure stories are proofed & audioproofed. If you don’t want to sub every day, you don’t have to. If there’s a market you don’t want to sub to, then don’t. I’m not forcing you to do anything here, it’s just an opportunity to get your work in front of people who might buy it.

This is the 2nd time I’ll be running the challenge, I can already report we generated sales in the previous one. People don’t submit for many reasons. I’ve removed a lot of those reasons by giving you paying markets checked as open during the challenge.

The rest is up to you, take the chance.
