Yesterday, I was delighted to receive a short story acceptance from Jill Finlay at The Weekly News. Poor Jill has been struggling to read all the submissions since last year and had stopped taking any more for a couple of months. My story, The Shopping Bag, was sent in last August, so I think it's a good idea to get through the backlog before being inundated again! The story is going to be in this week's Weekly News, the issue dated 20th April.
I think Jill is opening up submissions again at the end of this month, so good luck with any stories you send in. For those who don't know this publication, it takes the form of a newspaper which you can find in most large newsagents or supermarkets and is published by Scottish favourite D.C.Thomson (of My Weekly and People's Friend fame). It usually contains two or three stories a week and they should be suitable for a mixed audience of men and women, so they're not generally straight romance stories - in fact this is a good place for twist, ghost, 'cosy' crime, and slightly more quirky stories. But, as always, it's best to read a few of the stories they publish to get the right tone.
See you tomorrow on the other blog!
