When I submitted to Tor.com they sent me a link to check on the status of my book. The queue at the time was over a year long 😦 But every few days I checked it and saw that it was slowly moving up the line and now it is this much closer 🙂
I was planning on self-publishing The Things We Do sometime soon, but instead, I came across the Sci-fi Novella submission from Tor.com. I decided to give it a shot and send it in. I read somewhere on the site that it would take 6 months for a response, but when I sent it in, it listed the response time as just under a year!
Maybe I should have sent it in the moment the program opened. I found writing the cover letter a challenge, I hadn’t done that for years. But I did it 🙂
