Last week I shot off an e-mail submitting “Mr. Dependable” to A Hint of Seduction e-zine. (Ever notice I’m not too hot at coming up with titles?)
Gina was nice enough to let me know it will be a few weeks before I get a response, and I appreciate that. She said she’d gotten quite a few submissions lately. Well, yeah. I guess she would. There’s precious few places that we romance writers can submit short stories and that’s a real shame. Even fewer places that will actually pay you for the story. Those that do seem to be glutted with submissions, everybody desperately trying for publication.
Arabella closing its doors didn’t help that sector of the industry any. I was sad to see it go. It was a very professionally done mag and was a credit to the romance genre over all, IMO.
