I received a rejection letter from Fantasist Enterprises yesterday for my submission to their Sails & Sorcery anthology. On the upside, it was personalized with two paragraphs of comments and suggestions for improvements. That is not an industry standard. I appreciate William’s time and effort, and will definitely submit to him again.
“Relvan’s Rescue” makes its next stop at another pirate anthology after some tweaking. I really like the story and intend to find it a home. It may not have been what Fantasist wanted, but I know there is an audience out there for it.
