Good News Abounds

Thursday, February 07, 2008, 8:02 PM

There have been various triumphs, both large and small, amongst my blogging friends over the last week or two.

Moonrat's Contest

Just a couple of days after having my story accepted by Thuglit, I discovered I was joint winner of Moonrat's cover copy contest along with Josephine Damian. Now I'll have a Robert The Publisher T-shirt to add to my Thuglit one.

And speaking of Josephine...

She's enjoyed a double whammy, having also placed a story in an upcoming edition of Out of the Gutter magazine. Congrats to Josie. :)

Chris F Holm

Chris has not only had a new story appear in Spinetingler mag, his story Seven Days of Rain won the Spinetingler award for online short story of 2007.

And last, but most certainly not least...

McKoala

My favourite blogging-Scot-who-lives-in-Oz, McKoala, has bagged herself an agent. Words can't express how happy I am for the lovely McKoala. I've read several pieces of her work, from some startlingly good short stories, to her excellent YA novels, and I can tell you she deserves this break. Expect to see Sealsong on a bestseller list in the not-too-distant future.

Congatulations to everyone, here's hoping the good news keeps rolling.

Conduit! Thanks for the shout out!

Had not heard McKoala's news! I'll stop by her place and give her a high five.

Looking forward to reading your story in Thug. Me? I'm afraid the only I'll be doing for the next few weeks is term paper writing
: -( But I hope to finish another short story during spring break from school.

Okay, so pretty much slap my name on Josephine's comment. Thanks for the plug, and I can't wait to see your story in Thuglit. One nice thing about writing is that it's not a zero-sum game. I'm always psyched to see friends do well...

Conduit! Opportunity knocks!

BookEnds is having genre specific first page contest.

I just read in the comments that they might not stick to the order of genres on the list.

Charles Gramlich and myself are planning on entering in the thriller category.

You? You in, bro?

Moonrat: No probs, been kinda busy myself. :)

Josie: Looking at their genre list, I'm not sure anything of mine fits. I'll keep an eye on it, though, so thanks for the heads up.
