I've had a long ms. bouncing around for a couple of years now. At 27,000 words it's too short for traditional book publishers and too long for magazines (despite having a couple of magazine editors say the liked they story and wished they had room to publish it!).
Earlier this evening, an editor at a new small press responded to my query and asked to see the story. I e-mailed the ms. a couple of minutes ago and have my fingers crossed (though that makes typing really, really difficult) that the story will finally find a home.
