Circlet says right there on the website that the editor takes 12-18 months to make a decision, so I knew that when I submitted it. I think the problem is that the anthology I submitted it to has been delayed a couple of times, possibly owing to Circlet only publishing the next one when they've sold enough of the last one to cover costs

There aren't that many places I *can* submit it to. Not many editors are interested in 12000 words of homoerotic SF...
