Patsy Collins' blog for words about writing and writing about words.
Congratulations! Although I ve just had a return from Irelands Own, they did write me a lovely message. They said they liked my story and it was well written, but they are overly stocked with short stories at the moment. I ve submitted a couple to them before but never received a rely so I was pleased to get a response.
Congrats - I’m still waiting for an acceptance from PF, they got four of my stories currently. Do you know who best person to enquire about a short story I submitted back in October and an email as I posted it I’m not even sure it got there!
Excellent news. Well deserved success.
Well done and many congratulations! I look forward to reading the stories.
@ Chris – IO don't usually send rejections, so if they took the trouble to say they liked your writing you can be certain they mean it.@ Charlie – TPF replies are taking longer than usual at the moment, but I'd have expected you to have heard about one sent last October. The email for queries is firstname.lastname@example.org Just address it to 'the fiction team'.
Great thanks Patsy and yeah maybe it got lost in post I guess!
@ Charlie – or your reply didn't reach you. That can happen.
@patsy thank you Patsy. Can t believe I was happy with a rejection!
@charlie- I submitted to TPF last August and had a reply in May. I have another in since December that I m waiting to hear back on. Things taking a little longer at the moment I m guessing- Good luck!
Oh yeah I didn’t think of that, thanks Patsy again.
Thanks Chris that’s really encouraging and congrats on your successful submissions.
Well done on the acceptances, Patsy. May you have many more! Good wishes Kate Hogan
Well done! Alyson
Congratulations, Patsy! Will look forward to reading them. I've got several out with PF atm; and am waiting with baited breath on a story that got passed to Lucy to read, so am keeping my crossed!
Thanks, everyone!@ Carrie – good luck!
How exciting! That's wonderful, Patsy:)
I know it's all about the market research, but you nailed it, Patsy! Well done! I have sent in two this year. Feedback I got from a previous 'unsuccessful' was helpful.
Congratulations Patsy very much look forward to reading them.
You're on a roll! Well done. Great to have some good news. Linda
