A note about previous publication on the net

I'm not sure what the practice is at other e-zines, but at Raven Electrick, since the editor is a compulsive sort, she pulls a random line from stories and poems she's about to accept and runs a Google search on them to make sure the candidate isn't currently appearing on the net. Raven Electrick is buying FIRST electronic rights, after all, and if it's already on the net, then Raven won't be first. In the current instance, someone has just lost out on an acceptance, but, in the silver lining department, someone in the holds pile is going to receive a promotion.
