    Welcome to the Temple David. I got to read some of your work on here and damn — you’re a real bad ass when it comes to writing the genre. Keep going; I am hoping I can churn something out for Dark Wisdom.

    I sent you a copy of the story I was trying to get placed in Dark Wisdom. I got rejected three times from Dark Wisdom, hell they didn’t give the fiction stories the time of day so I am trying a nonfiction title with them to see what happens. I had better luck with nonfiction for some odd reason.
