The Longest Wait In (My) History
Due out late May / early June: Coffee Poems Anthology from World Enough Writers:
I submitted a poem (“The Wait”) on September 10, 2017; well in advance of their stated deadline (2/28/18).
A couple inquiries regarding publication date status received vague, at best, responses.
But (FINALLY!!) the editors contacted me this morning to confirm my mailing address for my Contributor’s Copy, which—if their assertion is correct—ought to arrive in my mailbox “within several weeks” of my return email.
If it arrives on, say, May 27th, the time from submission to book-in-hand will be: 624 days! (My Longest Wait So Far). While I’m usually happy about setting a new personal record, um….
We’ll see. I’ll keep you posted.
