Rejection #34: Daily Science Fiction

Thank you for submitting your story, "Kill the Witch", to Daily Science Fiction. Unfortunately, we have decided not to publish it. To date, we have reviewed many strong stories that we did not take. Either the fit was wrong or we'd just taken tales with a similar theme or any of a half dozen other reasons.

Best success selling this story elsewhere.

- Jonathan & Michele, Daily Science Fiction

Comment: I really liked this story and thought it had a chance. Oh well.

Rejection #33: Apex Magazine

Dear L Lambert,

We regret to inform you that your story "Cold Revenge" does not currently meet our needs. We're going to pass.

Apex wishes you future writing successes, and to try us again soon.

Sincerely,

The Apex Team

Note: Because they use HeyPublisher!, I can see that between the opening of my story and the rejection, two minutes elapsed. There's a lesson there for me.
