Not a riding animal:
14-day rejection from Fictitious Force after making the second round of readings.
129-day "I have held onto this tale based upon the strength of your writing. However . . . " from Shadowed Realms with invite to submit again.
In better news, I published a Tangent review written by sartorias for Paradox #7 and she had lovely things to say about my "The Tiger Fortune Princess":
"Foster writes with a graceful, easy touch, with just the right images, making the story into a tapestry. We’ve already seen the whole from the beginning, but that in no way takes away from the pleasure of going over it bit by bit in order to savor the details."
--Sherwood Smith, Tangent
