How long do you wait for good news?

A long time

This week has been a good week (yeah, I know it's only Wednesday, but good is good, whenever it happens)

Scarlet have taken a piece of erotica for their September issue. I'm thrilled to have cracked this sassy British market.

And Carve have just asked for a story for their September issue that I sent them a year and two weeks ago ...

Both markets have had a massive submission load to wade through and I'm beyond happy to have made the cut. But it can take a while to get that news and the smart writer forgets the work they've sent out and moves onto the next thing - nobody can keep their fingers closed for a year and two weeks!
