It was a good month! 
It was quite an unusual month for me to get so many invite sales: all of the invite sales were reprints by the way, and token or no pay. 

Feel free to ask me any questions, if you like.  


  1. Blimey. Very, very impressive Debs!

    1. Thanks, Simon. I think that's my personal best for a month.

  2. Well done, indeed! Hey, I might also have a story in that BEYOND collection...

    1. Hee! Only if you work hard to impress the editor, Milo.

  3. You are a force, Deb. Nice work. Care to share how many submissions you made in May?

    1. I can! I'm doing this sub challenge, so I'm listing all my subs. Ahem. I made 75 submissions in May.

  4. Yowsers. I'm going to set time aside every day to make at least one submission, so 30-40 a month suddenly becomes manageable.

    1. Little and often is a great strategy. At least one sub a day seems doable. Good luck, Erin, and let me know how you get on.
