Dear TQR folk:

Nearly a half-year ago I naively submitted our novelette, "The Way of the Saints" for consideration, apparently without fully understanding your process. I have not been reading the department blogs right along and I do not know how to search through the previous posts efficiently to find out the fate of the venture.

If you could please send me a note with the current status or a means by which I can find out about it on your website, I will be most grateful.

If I cannot find out the status in a reasonable amount of time (by Sept. 5, 2018) I will have to withdraw the submission, so please respond promptly.

Best regards, johnVC

I apologize again for the trouble we've had with Saints. We've been experiencing a big slow down from the slush readers on the Floor of late. We're spread out over the continent as far as staff goes, so it's not like I can drive to their house and see what's what. They're also volunteers and therefore I can't really lay the wood to them. If there is no word on it by Sept 5th, I'll promptly pull it from consideration. In the mean time, I'll give the reader a virtual kick in the pants. You have been too patient. I am sorry it's been a case of your work falling through the cracks.

Teddy --

Thank you for your reply, and especially for responding so promptly.

If there is some interest in the story, by all means, keep it after Sept. 5, but do give the reader a virtual kick. We are capable of being patient, knowing that there is movement.
Looking forward to hearing more.

Looking forward to hearing more, johnVC

Rocks has just perused his slush pile and did not see this cap. Perhaps he has mistakenly deleted it, perhaps having confused it with one already vetted. Does his esteemed Bullesque colleague find it anywhere in his pasture? This VC is prodigious. Rocks has probably written 20 pages of review of his various fine works, atop the reading time. The Rockster, too, has a fairly large trunk of stories, mayhaps he'll fire a few his way, in the finest workshopping tradition.
