Short Fiction Sale: Mirror Shards Vol. 2

I am happy to announce that my story, Rats Will Run, will appear in Mirror Shards Vol. 2, an augmented-reality themed anthology edited by Thomas K. Carpenter.

This is my first short fiction sale, hopefully just the first of many.  And remember that 100 rejections I was “aiming” for?  Well, I hit 94.

The deadline for Mirror Shards 2 submissions is May 5th–So you’ve still got a few days!  Link to guidelines below.  If you’ve got a story that fits the theme, I highly recommend giving it a shot.

  1. Congratulations Marina! That is awesome. Right now I’m sitting at 98 rejections, and was also hoping to publish before my “goal” of 100. 😉

    • Thanks! I liked having the 100 rejections “goal,” it turned a negative into a positive for me. Rejections just mean you’re working hard and submitting more. Good luck with reaching your “goal” too!

    Congratulations! Well done on the sale.

    Congratulations! They rejected me!

    As someone who’s given up after on a story after one rejection in the past, I am greatly impressed by your sticking power ! From now on I’m going to take this attitude of collecting rejections, rather than hoping for sales.
