As Marv Would Say, "YEEEESSSS!"

Angels are singing.

The sun is a little brighter.

That's right: I scored my first-ever pro-rate fantasy sale! Wendy Bradley, editor of the new science fiction, fantasy and horror magazine Farthing (see link at right) has accepted my short story for publication! Wendy had requested a rewrite last month, and after seeking critiques from a number of trusted friends (much thanks to Patti, Faith, Chris, Sue, and Joan!!!), the final bit of fabulous feedback came from Carina Gonzolez, owner of The Zen Pen (yep, link at right).

I've previously mentioned that Carina Gives Good Crit. I'm going to say it again: She Gives Good Crit. It was her feedback that got me to seriously rethink certain elements in my story. And I'm positive that this is what helped me rewrite the story into a winner. So a HUGE thanks to Carina!


Book Buzz of the Day
Confessions of Super Mom, Melanie Lynne Hauser. Yeah, I know that I already buzzed this novel. But now I have a copy in my sweaty li'l hands. As I purchased it today at Borders, the clerk commented on how terrific the cover was. And she was right! I can't wait to dive into this book.
