I received lovely news recently. My manuscript of short stories and poetry had been picked up for publication. The contract came in the mail, was signed and sent back out.
I am supper thrilled to have my short stories picked up. I love doing short stories. I have amassed quite a number of them. Poetry. This is not something I do often, in fact it was poetry I had written in my early to mid teens and I just tucked them away. Knowing where they were I never placed much stock in them. They all just been sitting in a drawer in my spare bedroom, well until now. She really liked what I submitted and we have started working on getting this project out.
I am so tickled pink and hope the people who decide to buy and give me a chance with the short stories and poetry will enjoy what I have written.
Still floating pretty high right now.
I started a writing group in my area. We have dubbed ourselves The Wonder Chicks. In December of last year we released an anthology of short stories. It was a lot of hard work and time getting this book together. I’m amaze we are all still friends after this experiences for it did try us and each other. Last week, on March 12th, we made the Amazon Best Sellers list in three categories.
Amazon Best Sellers Rank:
#9 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Anthologies & Literary Collections > General
#12 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Anthologies & Literary Collections > Short Stories #33 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Short Stories
But as quickly as we rose, we fell. Needless to say we are very proud of ourselves. I will be printing out the picture of the screen save and framing it as it is a new feather in my hat. Where the book will take us as individuals remains to be seen. It was a fun process overall and now we can just move on to the next project.
