submission updates

I've been getting a bit impatient about hearing back from the two publishers I submitted manuscripts to. Surely they should have responded by now?! So I went back and checked their websites. Remember, I submitted to Avalon in early June, and Whiskey Creek Press in early September:



Avalon:

"HOW SOON CAN I HEAR ABOUT MY MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION?
You should hear back from Avalon Books within 6-8 months. PLEASE NO PHONE CALLS BEFORE THAT."


Whiskey Creek Press:

"RESPONSE TO SUBMISSIONS IS WITHIN APPROXIMATELY 90 - 120 DAYS."


Which means early December before I even reach the response period for both of those publishers. Optimistically, that would mean getting very good news near the beginning of winter, when my seasonal depression is reaching its worst. Pessimistically, it would mean getting news that would make me want to stick my head in the oven, and not just for the heat. Better to be optimistic, because by then I might not be able to afford to turn on the gas.
