err..this might sound silly, but does an old post on the blog amounts to being published earlier?
Yes Uma it does count as published earliier.
There are only 3 stories till now, waiting for some more interesting reads 🙂
Dear Nivedita, thank you for noticing and asking 🙂
The thing is, these were the 3 best reads received this time, and we felt that a few others, did not quite make the mark while some were submitted too late, and publishing those would not be fair to those who sent in on time…hopefully, we will have 5 super entries the next month!
