I just wanted to share a little something about slushing. While yes, I can’t deny a little fiendish enjoyment in rejecting a truly horrible story, my absolute FAVORITE part about being a submissions editor is when I send up a story to our editor in chief and have him like it enough to buy it. I get a vicarious thrill out of being able to write back to an author and tell them, YES. You’re In.

I’m just tickled pink at the moment! ^_^
