Two Pieces of news!

This wonderful little publication is available for free in Northwich and the surrounding areas – I found it in a Tesco Express, Petrol Station, and Post Office. I haven’t noticed this publication before but now I’m seeing it everywhere! Big thanks to the editor for accepting my story.
2.) I also sold my contemporary fantasy short story, Boon of a Faery Queen, to Alban Lake Publishing’s magazine for young readers, FrostFire Worlds. It’s due to appear in the May 2017 issue.
Two bits of good news to start off the year!
1.) I received my first short story acceptance of 2017! My Rom-Com, Endless Nuptials, will be appearing in Ourtown Magazine’s Valentine’s Day issue this month – so I might see my work in a local store! Yay! Big thanks to the members of VRWG who forwarded the call.
2.) I’m also very proud to have a prominent quote from my Steampunk novel-in-progress appearing on Rebecca Gibson’s poster for the Skeletal Biology in the Carolinas conference. Can’t wait to see it!
