Just received word from a publisher that their new projects are not going ahead and have had two short stories released back to me.
Disappointing, but that’s the way of things sometimes. The publishing world, regardless of scale, can be a fickle mistress and it’s not that unusual for publishers to go on hiatus or indeed fold completely.
Still, onwards and upwards. Or, as we say in these parts, what you lose on the swings, you gain on the roundabouts.
