Consent For Publication

June was a very good month. Some of my short stories were accepted by various publishers. I’m humbled when someone else finds the subject of my story as fascinating as I do. Within the next few months, be on the lookout for the anthology title and a Link posted on my Published Page. The desired…

Book Launch!

Another short story published in an Inspire #Anthology is humbling. I enjoy friendship with some of the people in the group, and being a part of this book with talented writers in the region.

Consent to Publish

(Photo was filtered through the Vinci iPhone app). Excitement and thankfulness entwined in my heart, when I received another contract! The anthology of extremely short stories under 275, single-syllable words is being compiled.  An editor sharpened and clarified my creation, with questions that challenged my concepts. The story was clear in my mind, but it might…

Another Story

It’s funny how an AFPA amazes me, (Acceptance For Publication Agreement) when that’s what I work toward. I signed one a few days ago. Ta dah! The opposite is also true.

The excited and exuberant chatter of the various authors added to the atmosphere of celebration for our family, friends, and the public who visited Origins Coffee and Tea. We authors enjoyed introductions with those we did not know and the connection of a face to a name in the 2015 Inspire Forgiveness Book. Time to say…
