Accepted! Published!

I’m thrilled to report that my story “The Wannabe” will be included along with 22 others in the newest Guppy anthology. Something Fishy will be out towards the end of the year. The Guppies (a sub chapter of Sisters In Crime) create and publish an anthology every other year. I can hardly wait. An added perk for me is that it’s taken many years for this story to find the right market.

I also have two poems in the current issue of Light: A Journal of Light Verse. You can read them here. So, keep writing and submitting. I like sharing my successes, but I’m always delighted to hear about everybody else’s as well.

  4. Congratulations on your acceptance for the Guppy anthology. I’m sure that made your day. Your two poems made me smile, and made MY day! Keep writing; keep submitting!


    • Thanks, Jan. Getting into a Guppy anthology was one of my stated goals, as was getting into Light. It took a while, but they finally both happened. Glad you enjoyed the poems. Light is all about giving people a laugh. A great publication. Lida
