View Full Version : Nothing new here, but by golly, it makes me happy

Thanks for the submission. It was very good.
We're scheduling it for publication in the October issue of Smoke Signals.
The story was "Breathing Lessons: A Vampire's Story" (a prime example of putting together two pretentious, derivative titles to make one good one).

I've dealt with Smoke Signals before -- with happy results -- but I knew a vampire story was a bit of a gamble. If it were accepted, I was hoping they'd take the hint and schedule it for October. All has gone well.

And I get $50 on publication. This is a dark time for me financially, and while I know one acceptance is no substitute for looking for a job, every little bit helps.

My only regret is that I won't be able to see the issue when it comes out. Smoke Sigs has moved away from print; it's on a pay site that's somewhat beyond my reach. Still -- woohoo!

I hope someday to be so prolific and so successful that I can take one acceptance for granted. That time is no time soon.
