I was prompted (after reading a recent post by Brad Torgersen that brought me to an older post by Jay Lake where he discussed his publication history and how he has amassed over a thousand rejections) to put some of my own stats up here.
- 284 Rejections before first small press sale
- 397 Rejections before first semi-pro
- 505 Rejections before first pro
- 592 total subs with twenty or so stories out at market now
By the end of 2010 I will have had twelve stories published in total, not counting reprints and such.
