When Martin starts making ambiguous comments with SMILEYS... that's when we know something's up. What do you know, Martin?

Re: Success!

So it turns out I do have writing news after all. :)

I sold a story to Fireside Magazine today! No idea yet of when it will appear, but I'm really pleased this story found a home so soon, and to such a new-yet-respected market! Apparently playing with Greek mythology worked for them.

This isn't a sale, but I had a baby 11 days ago, and that was pretty successful. I still like her, too. Despite now having to type one-handed.

Re: No communication

The SASE take MUCH longer to be judged and returned. If you haven't received a response, email the contest coordinator, Joni - you can query about both your results and about your SASE.

Many people prefer to submit electronically - it's much easier on the judges as well.
