Very first acceptance!

My flash story ‘Three Sisters’ has been accepted by Golden Visions Magazine for the Spring 2011 issue. I’m very pleased. Oh hell, I’m overjoyed. (I don’t do blase very well.)

Strange are the ways of publications. I tripped over the magazine on a mailing list posting and realized the story was sitting, already formatted and fresh from a rejection, on my desktop. So I sent it out, noting their posted response time was 4-6 weeks.

Six HOURS later, I get an email. I assumed it was an auto-reply acknowledgement. It was a nice note from the editor, accepting the story. I read it four times before it sunk in. I must have just hit it right.

When I get the published url, I’ll add it to this page.
