Pulled a story from an anthology this morning that was scheduled for publication in May . . . June . . . July . . . and August.
Funny thing is (looking back on it) the story itself was never really "accepted" into the anthology anyhow.
Some signs, in this instance, anyway, that the publisher may not be right for your story:
1) You receive no acknowledgement of your submission.
2) You follow-up in three months to determine if they have received it.
3) They get back to you two months later and tell you that your story is a "finalist . . . of sorts."
4) You read their newsletter every month and see the anthology is scheduled for May, then June, then July, then August, then . . . it's not even mentioned.
5) Nine months have gone by without a formal acceptance.
At any rate, time to find a new home for my award winning (Writers of the Future Honorable Mention) story "Adamson's Rock."
I'll be proud to place it anywhere . . . but there.
