I’ve finished writing “Don’t Let Him In” at around 6,200 words. Rather than “indie” publishing I decided to try the traditional route with submissions to both print and online literary zines. Now, the waiting begins and I mean a test of my patience as this process can take months. This story has to work its way up the reading chain to the editor or group of editors who will ultimately decide upon its publication. But, the rewards are great if accepted for a first publication. A publication having gone through the review and acceptance lends credibility in contrast to indie publishing. This story will be published one way or the other. It’s just a matter of time.
