Amount of time it takes from the moment you mail out an acceptance note to the moment a post declaring the news hits LiveJournal: roughly 30 minutes. Or thereabouts.

  1. I wasn’t sitting by my computer constantly checking my mail. I swear. It was just a coincidence that I happened to be there when it arrived. Honestly!My only defence is that it’s my first sale. :)

  2. Would be fun to see your scorecard for the issue: X acceptances, X secondary announcements. That’s really an unexpected thing for me about personal blogs: welcome and delightful promotion which has that benefit of sincerity and diverse reach. It’s certainly brought a lot of periodicals to my attention that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

  3. Blush.

    Ann & I were on the phone about it about 30 seconds afterward, too.

    Hey, thanks for not holding a grudge about me calling you Patrick Nielsen Hayden… ;)

  4. E.C. Myers – I'm a young adult author who spends too much time on the internet. My novels FAIR COIN and QUANTUM COIN were published in 2012 by Pyr Books.

    I’m laughing really hard right now because I know both of those people! And if I hadn’t gotten their e-mails too, I might not have known about their good news…
