    CONGRATULATIONS MATT!! - He's been published! :D

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Ashleigh, Jan 4, 2010.

    It's 3AM, and my extremely talented Boyfriend Matt (Banzai) has just rang me up to tell me that he has just recieved his first EVER acceptance for a short story, entitled 'Scorched Earth' (Which was my personal favourite of his - I told him so!)

    He will be published in 'The Four Horseman; An Anthology Of Conquest, War, Famine, And Death' June 2010.

    AN ANTHOLOGY!!!! :eek:

    I'm so proud of you, Matt. Nobody deserves recognition for their talent and efforts more than you. I know how much you've wanted this :D It was only the other day that we were making our pacts about being published in 2010 - who knew this would come so soon?

    I'm so, so proud and happy for you Sweetie. This is the first step to publishing success honey, I know it.

    I'm gonna go squeal more on the phone now.

    Congratulations are in order, people!!

    Congratulations, friend. Unfortunately, I'm too tired to say something unique in order to make my reply special, so this will have to do. ... Actually, that wasn't half bad.
