Let’s see… last post was on Oct. 7th. At the end of that day I received a congratulatory e-mail from Helen Polaski, Editor for Adam’s Media’s The Rocking Chair Reader. My short story, “Homecoming” has been selected for inclusion in The Rocking Chair Reader: The Gathering, which will be released in the fall of 2005.
I’m thrilled. My very first ever sale!!!!
On the 12th, I rec’d the contract, scruntinized it carefully for a couple days, signed and sent it back. Edits have already been rec’d and approved.
Hopefully, this will only be the beginning of many acceptances.
Oct. 18 – Woman’s World passed on my short story “Marinara Magic”, so I’m looking for it a new home. I knew that one was a long shot, with as many submissions as they get, but it was worth a try.
