Thank you :) It's my best year yet... I neglected to include the "stories stuck in editorial limbo due to publisher/editor difficulties" stats, because they make me feel like a jinx or something- we need a word for that post-accepted, pre-contract state...

Sometimes authors seem to call these 'on hold,' which seems like a nice, limbo sort of name. Hopefully they end up as more yesses for you :)

That's the thing- the stories were accepted, and then the issue/antho were delayed because of publisher's problems. (My husband started teasing me about being a kiss of death- it actually happened to three stories in a row. Yeep.) I usually think of "on hold" as "under consideration." Which I suppose still fits. Not that it matters, really; I can't count them as sales until they're actually released. I kinda like the "Limbo" designation, though, I'll keep that for now.
