Congratulations, Alex! Story is king, so when you believe in the story it pays to keep working it until it shines and gets out to the public! Well done!

I have not one, but two, exciting pieces of news!

Firstly, I have a story coming out in the Upon a Thrice Time anthology. The Kickstarter funded day one, and doubles as a great way to pre-order the book if you're interested in obtaining it. Lots of great authors in every one of these anthologies. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/52625019/upon-a-thrice-time

The other news, and man, did it floor me, is that I won the grand prize for the Baen Fantasy Adventure Award! My mind is officially blown. The story should be going up on their website later this month, and I'll post the link at that point.

@foxed thank you! And as a sign of hope for those getting certificates in WotF, my Baen finalist was previously an SHM in this contest (identical story, no edits or revisions). Keep on submitting your stories to other markets!

I just saw the news on Locus Magazine about the Baen award & went straight to this thread. You are having quite the rock star year, justly deserved, no doubt. I'm inspired! salute  

 

And @officer, congrats to you, too! You're clearly on mark! I greatly appreciate the behind the curtain info about the SHM.

I didn't remember if there was a thread for anybody to share their writing successes with everybody, so I figured I'd start one. :)

I've been taking a break from forums for a while, but I just wanted to stop back to share some exciting news. My first publication is now posted on Fantasy Magazine. It's not fiction, unfortunately, but it's still getting my name on a prestigious magazine so I am very excited. I will have an entry posted every Saturday for at least the next 3 weeks after this one.

This one: an interview of author Alethea Kontis.

The other three (I'm not certain of the order yet):
An interview with David Wolverton (David Farland)
An article titled "Wizard vs. Witch: Who's the Real Villain?" examining the Wizard of Oz.
A comparison of "Wicked" the book vs. "Wicked" the movie.

I'm hoping to make this a regular thing, as long as I can keep Cat Rambo interested. Finally something for my hungry cover letter template. :)

My congratulations!!!!! What is a secret of your success? Do you have any publications online? I have started to publish the short stories ("Listening the thoughts") and to find the readers isn't so simple)

Respect and Honor,
Alexandra Miracle
