More Good News

More good news, my friends.

When I got home tonight, I found three story-related emails in my box.

The final verdict?

Two acceptances, one rejection.

Works out pretty well if you ask me.

The exciting part is that two of my flash fiction pieces, “No Other Way,” and “To Be Near Her,” were accepted for Pill Hill Press’ Daily Flash 2012: 366 Days of Flash Fiction anthology.  It’s not a paying market, and you don’t get contributor’s copies, but to me it’s worth it.  Especially when you consider that the total combined word count of both my accepted stories is only 582 words.

To me, the exposure will be worth it.  Being able to buy a copy of the anthology, and finding my two stories in the collection – it will be an amazing feeling, I am certain.

So right now this is where my current publication statuses are.  Nothing yet has been put to print, but here are my acceptances.

All in all, things are looking up where my writing is concerned.  I’ve still got a long way to go and much to reach for – especially the need to create a full length novel – but I’m happy right now.  Content to write and perfect the art of short stories and flash fiction.  I hope you’ll check out these wonderful small press publishers, as they are amazing and can always use more support.

Thanks for reading!
