At this point, if you haven’t heard from myself, Anita, Sally or Sabrina about your submission to Clockwork Phoenix 4, either you are a finalist or you slipped through the cracks somehow. Feel free to query at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a finalist, I’m afraid you shouldn’t celebrate yet. The stories we’re holding add up to almost 130,000 words, and the book can only hold a little over 80,000. I’ve never faced a situation quite like this before — it’s a good thing, but there are some tough decisions ahead — so please bear with us.
