1 Acceptance and 2 Rejections

The winner of the ebook by Nicole Zoltak is....Joanne! Congrats!!

Recently I've had two rejections and one acceptance. The acceptance has made both rejections worth it!

So now, the rejections first:

My Atlantis Story, "Poseidon's Claim" was rejected by Pill Hill Press. It was originally short listed, but they said they had over 200 stories and mine didn't make it in. Oh well.

My Rainbow story was rejected by Shimmer. Form rejection. So I sent it to A Fly in Amber to see what they think of it.

And now for the acceptance.....drum roll.....



"Poseidon's Claim" has found a home with Aurora Wolf. You can read it here. ***Please go and leave a comment for me!!!***

Not bad. It's the first acceptance this year since Mindlfights in December. How has the new year been treating you?

Congratulations! That's why we should never give up. Rejections mean we haven't found the right home yet.

Wow I wish I had so much success. I'm looking for galleries to exhibit my paintings. As being synesthete I live a life in colors. Synesthesia means that I see colors when I see words and numbers.I transform this in paintings of names and birthdays.
