Judging by me own experience as well as what I'm reading from other writers, 2015 has become the Year of the Rejection Letter. It would seem as if publishers have grown more conservative in their selections of late and don't feel comfortable taking as much risk with less easily accessible material.
Fortunately, I have some good relationships with a few people who are. Case in point, the publishers of Beyond Tomorrow and Beyond Science Fiction have run several of my flash fiction pieces. Now, they have accepted the first of my three-part "Earth-God Saga." News on that story's availability when I know more.
