Juked sent me a note saying the story I'd sent wasn't quite what they were looking for right now, but that I should send more work.
Apparently, John said my name came up a bunch at AWP, which is pretty cool to hear, but hard to imagine. I wish I was not the shy-est and had gone up to him after the online presence panel and told him how awesome I thought it was that he mispronounced his own name and then corrected himself. Sounds like something I would do.
Nonetheless, this wins Rejection of the Week.
