Almost there

I know I keep promising a final list of stories. I apologize. My life has been turned upside-down. We still have two stories we're on the fence about (we'll be in touch soon, promise!), but we've made decisions on all the others. Thank you to everyone who submitted. We had a lot of fun reading all the stories. Writing rejections was one of the hardest things I've ever done. It's a learning experience for us as editors. Frances and I have never done this kind of thing before.
