I am rather overjoyed admittedly. Now I can get some feedback for my fiction. But my mind, primarily my common sense, only too clearly states, that Black Library shall be swamped by so much by numerous others that I doubt mine would ever be read.

they will read it, however they only respond to those that they do not reject. If you don't hear back, they have obviously rejected it. sad...but thats how their doing it.

It'd be so exciting if one of us heresy onliners got published. Good luck to anyone who 1. Has the talent to write 40k fiction 2. Has the balls to submit it to judged by professionals.

Im planning on submitting a Short Story this year. Its all planned out, although i've only written around 2,000 words so far. So I've got a fair bit of work to do by 31st July. Im totally convinced that it won't get published (Mossy Toes has the right to be though if hes submitting this year, his stories are a good read if you havn't read them yet! ), but its been fun planning/writing it.

But yeah, its a Fantasy short story called Darkness Stirs.

I have 6 short story ideas: 5 fairly-far-along WIPs, plus a new one that was beamed into my brains from above last night.

Plus a tentative novel submission, but I don't know if I'll get far enough along with that one by the end of the submissions window, so I'm giving the shorts higher precedence.

(and congrats, CotE, on what I assume to be a new medal--I got one of the same recently, too )

I've been writing a story (some of you may remember it from a LONG LONG way back, about an IG Regiment - quite gritty, lots of bad language. I'd have to tone it down a bit), to see if it's quality stuff. Might consider sending it before I head off.
