So yesterday’s post had a glaring omission—I was published twice during the month of April!!! Squeeeee! Talk about an oversight! My story, Eleven, is featured in the May edition of the on-line journal Foliate Oak. I wrote this as part of my short story book called Almost Midnight. I’m hoping to have this book out by this summer. (This was the short romantic story I talked about here and here.)
The other story I had published is titled The Subsequent Existence Corporation and will be published in issue #71 of The Nocturnal Lyric, coming out in late November 2011. And, no, I do not have a link to their website. I don’t think they have one.
The odd thing about this—I got both acceptance letters on the same day. It was a wonderful, surreal day for me as an author. I kept walking around saying, Hey, I might have a chance at this! This was the boost I needed. The last time I had gotten anything accepted was back in January, so I was feeling pretty low. This was a super-duper boost.
Now, looking forward. I finished two stories for this call to submissions. Editor has corrected one of them and has to look at the other. There is no limit to how many stories you can submit, so I’m pretty excited. I like the concept and I have four solid ideas, so I’m going to write them all!!! Two down, two to go.
I also started working on something very cool today. I don’t want to go into it too much, but I’m thinking about having a contest on my blog very shortly, as in mid-June. I started making the prize today, but I can’t say what it is just yet. It’s a secret. Shhhh!
So, to all my writing buddies out there… happy writing!
