Do me and other editors a favor? When submitting, please, please include a cover letter. It doesn’t have to say much. Just a simple, “Dear Editor, Please accept my story, “The Aardvark’s Purse” for consideration for acceptance to Fashion Today. I look forward to hearing from you. Jane Plain.”

Hardly anything more gets under my skin as much as receiving a sub for Apex Digest with no cover letter – just the attached story. :smash:


Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
