Novel and Reject

Posted on: June 10th, 2007 by Anthony Rapino 5 Comments

So, I had a rejection today from a new magazine called Noctem Aeternus

They said it was well received, but not a sale. Though I’m pretty sure it was a form reject.

Check out the site. The mag is a free PDF, so it’s worth checking out. Plus, they pay 10 cents a word, so if you have something worth sending, go for it.

In novel news, I added over 1,000 words today…although I think that’s actually yesterday and today…

Anyway, the word counter says it all. I’m going to go watch a movie now.

I recently bought htis 50 horror movie pack for like 12 bucks. Helluva deal. It has a couple gems that I already own (Night of the living dead, Little Shop of Horrors, etc) but it also has some other goodies like House on Haunted Hill (original), The last Man on Earth, The Bat, White Zombie, and more than I can mention.

Yeah. So I’m going to go watch that.

Damn, I can really go for some mac and cheese.

Wait, maybe I’m going to make mac and cheese first.

Then watch the movies.

Yeah.

    I envy you! Watching those films along with mac and cheese. So very unfair.

    I guess you deserve it, after plugging on with the novel. Keep up the good work. 🙂

    Thanks, Sury. I’m not sure I really deserve it, but I’ll try to make up for it with extra wordage today.

    It was pretty strange. At midnight I have the sudden urge for mac and cheese. And no, it wasn’t the stuff from a box. I went to my kitchen and made homemade mac and cheese, at midnight.

    Oh me.

    Sorry to hear about the rejection from Noctem Aeternus. I think your instincts are probably correct about it being a form rejection. It sounds exactly the same as the rejection that they sent me. They rejected my work pretty fast too (2 days).

    That’s a lot of money for a story. You could almost make a living off that if you could crank out that many stories one after the other.

  5. onipar says:

    Steve, yeah, I had that feeling. That’s okay though, I just wish I had something else to send them.

    Yeah, Scott, real nice money. HWA states 5 cents per word as pro-rates, so 10 cents is great. Now I just have to sell them something…
