    Someone is finally publishing something I wrote

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by erik martin, Jul 13, 2010.

    Someone is finally going to publish something I wrote! Just a short story, not the book that I have been querying, and an online magazine, but at least its some validation that I don't suck. Just a little thing, but enough to get me excited.:)

    Its Frontier Tales, an online mag, I'm not getting paid, but most of their authors have pretty fair bios and they only do four stories a month. Obviously, from the title, the story is a historical frontier piece (Not my usual genre.) taking place in the North Carolina mountains in 1785. It will be in their August issue, #11.

    Overall, not a terribly impressive accomplishment, but in contrast to the rejections on my book query, any little thing is enough to make me feel like Navin R. Johnson the day the phone books came out.

    Most online places don't pay, no worries. It's the publicity that counts! Well done and congrats on getting your stuff out there, dude. :)

    Don't sell yourself short. Being published is being published, no matter how big or how small. If you think of how many writers there are, and all of us are vying for the spots in each and every mag and publishing house, anything is great!

    It's awesome news! Congratulations!
