I want to take a second to suggest to everyone that they send some work out. Since I've had some time off from working, I've been on a major rampage submitting to journals and book contests. This has led to a lot of rejection, and I'm happy to share with you, some success!
Thanks to Cider Press Review, Puerto del Sol, and Gulf Coast , and Pebble Lake Review for my recent acceptances.
Thanks also to the Cider Press Review Book Award for naming my manuscript, Mystery School, a finalist in their 2008 Book Prize.
