3 week update: 72% raised, 42 submissions!
Wow! Our Imps & Minions fundraising is going great so far. At 3 weeks in, we've raised 72% of our fundraising goal. With 5 weeks to go, we are ahead of schedule, and we might even reach our stretch goal!
We've also received 42 submissions from authors (averaging 2 per day), and our editors have been making their way through the queue. If we keep this rate up, we'll have close to 200 submissions by the end of the submission window. I expect the rate will increase (since authors will be working on stories they've started after finding out about the anthology, and since some authors like to hold on to stories until later in the window so they can make sure the piece is polished). I am guessing we will have between 200 and 300 submissions by the end of the submission window, and an acceptance rate of around 8 to 12%.
It looks like Imps & Minions is shaping up to be an awesome anthology!
Thanks everyone for your support!
