About five days ago, I submitted a short story to an anthology. The publisher (who shall remain nameless for now) has some pretty strict submission requirements and I thought I had them all covered when I pushed the “Send” button in Gmail, but a few hours later, I got this:
Dear Mr. Pyles,
Thank you for your interest in XXXX anthologies! We are unable to accept your story at this time due to the following:
– missing story summary
– author biography does not meet minimum requirements of 100-200 words
Please consider resubmitting after previewing these links.
I won’t include the links here bu there were five of them. Yikes!
