First of all, I'm honoured to be featured on the lovely Roses of Prose blog today where I've written about a couple of the historical places near here that are great for research. It would be lovely to see some of you there, if you have time!
I was delighted to find out that one of my short stories is being published in the August issue of Woman Alive magazine, which should be out soon. I've been a subscriber to this great monthly Christian woman's magazine for years - it's Ecumenical and not afraid to discuss controversial issues. The editor only uses an occasional story and I just happened to have a rather sweet romantic one with a slight twist that fitted summer!
If anyone is looking for an incentive to finish a longer short story or novella, here are two publishers looking for specific themed stories. Still Moments Publishing wants stories of between 5,000 and 15,000 words for their Christmas Magic Anthology - closing date July 28th, and they have limited space. The fairly new Red Queen Press is seeking re-imagined fairy tales for an anthology: contemporary stories for grown-ups - closing date July 15th.
