Perhaps I was dropped as a child, but I am so proud of this. ALMOST! Wow, and I thought almost was only good for Horseshoes. Who'd a thunk it?

Thank you for your submission of "The Sinkhole" to SmokeLong Quarterly. Although we are unable to use this particular piece for publication, we want you to know how much we enjoyed reading your work. We'd love for you to continue to submit new pieces.
Samantha, there were elements that all of us enjoyed and one of our editors in particular just doted on it and asked that if were to reject it that we pass along how much she lobbied for it. Ultimately, it came down to three Southern votes that wanted the voice to be more specific about Mountain life versus two Northern votes that liked it pretty much as is. We'd strongly recommend that you submit this to Pindeldyboz. It might find a good home there. And we definitely want to read more of your work. Pretty please?
We hope you enjoy our magazine. Please check in periodically to see what's new, and don't forget to send us your best flash up to 1000 words.
Editor, SmokeLong Quarterly
