We have received 143 submissions so far:
We have rejected 72 so far. 2 have been held for voting, 14 are before the editors now, 2 have been withdrawn, and 53 are still in our inbox.
We have not reviewed any submissions received after April 30th.
1) All submissions MUST have the word "Submission" and the story's title in the subject line. We've been lax so far this quarter, but we'll start rejecting these stories outright. They will not receive receipt emails, so if you don't hear from us after submitting, please verify that you did have the correct subject line.
2) A few subs ended up in our spam mailbox this month. Not sure how, because they all had the right subject lines, but we found three and replied to those authors today. That worries me, though, because we clearly state in our guidelines: "If you do not receive an email within a few days, assume we have not received your submission and resend it." These three submissions were older (May 1 thru May 6) and we didn't receive queries or resubmissions. These subs were almost deleted as junk mail when I cleaned out the spam inbox today. Please, please, please resubmit or query if you don't receive our receipt email within three days.
