    Published in the Illuminata!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by becca, Apr 20, 2010.

    My story, "The Hottest Laptop," has been published in the Illuminata e-zine, from Tyrannosaurus Press.

    If anyone would like to have a read they have the pdf available on their website. It's in the Vol.8#2 April 2010

    I am sooooo excited. This is a story that went through quite a few rejections, but that I just loved. I'm glad I finally found somewhere for it!

    Yes, I have a dark side. Why does that shock everyone? Sometime I'll have to really let my dark side show and then I'll shock the socks off all you guys.

    Both the stories in the anthologies are kinda dark. :D

    Then there is the bacon horror story I wrote........... *laughs evily*

    That was a hell of a good story, Becca! I loved it. :)

    :eek: From now on, I'm reading all those software agreements I click on.


    It's... BACON!

    Thanks Charlie!

    I'm one of those bad people that just click agree most of the time. All the stuff is normally the same. I'll skim through one once in awhile.... But that is about it.

    Published AGAIN! (Please don't hate me.)

    I just got my copy of the Ohio Poetry Association's newsletter and Literary Journal (Common Threads).

    My poem, "Still Here," was published in the Journal! I'm a published state wide poet! This is awesome!

    Thank you! That is one of the best compliments you could have given me. Every detail should compliment a story. It gives it depth and meaning.

    At first when I read about those fake flames on the laptop I thought it was a bit of a poser item, but then how they lit up, that got me!

    I also love the "LucSat" detail which I'm guessing is the combination of Lucifer and Satan?

    Altough I think "SatLuc" would have a better ring to it, but in all honesty, if that's about the only comment I could give on your story I'd say you did an amazing job!

    Congratulations once again :D

    Congrats Becca. Great to hear of another success for you. You really are doing fantastically with getting your work out there now.

    Can't wait till the day I get a PM or see a thread on here stating that you have a a novel coming out with a fairly big name publishing house!

    Keep up the good work and look forward to hearing of your next publication as always. :) *huggles*
