I decided a little while ago to edit "Magna's Plea" and submit it to Pill Hill Press's Shadows & Light, Vol II: More Legends anthology. On Saturday, I edited the first five pages, and I finished it up tonight. I didn't change much to the actual story, but I did add more emotions, which is something a previous publisher who rejected the story suggested to me.
At 6:47 PM, I submitted "Magna's Plea" to Pill Hill Press.
At 6:57 PM, I received an email from Pill Hill Press saying that "Magna's Plea" had been short listed.
Yes, in ten minutes it was short listed.
Wow. Just wow.
