Gala announced. Friday, April 5th, in the Taglyan Cultural Center--looks like something out of a fairy tale. And my old mentor from my Eugene Wordos days, Dean Wesley Smith, is doing the story to go with the cover art! I love it when a story comes full circle!

I appreciate the support. I'm in the Midway just a stone's throw away from Frog Town.

Have a great time at writer's week and the gala.

I just finished a massive rewrite of my story. It could *almost* count as a fresh piece, but that would be cheating.

I'm open to critiques for anyone who wants eyes on their story. Send them my way.

Good luck all.

ALWAYS available for critiques. PM me.

Honey, I never read submission rates on grinder, simply because i cannot fill in the results in that website myself, so how many like me withdraw info i don't know. i just find places and send stories. i already received accept for one story (the one i actually bothered to print thoroughly edit professionally) i'm waiting for your yes wotf010 wotf010

I'm late to the party but congratulations Wulf Moon! It was great to see a name I recognised. :D

I thought Brittany's achievement to finish the story under those circumstances was epic enough, so even more congratulations on being a finalist! :D
