I'm so happy. I opened my email this morning, and there it was - The People's Friend has accepted my short story. I've sold my first short story to The People's Friend!!! I've been trying - on and off - for a couple of years, so this news is fantastic. :snoopy:

HOORAY, JENNY! What's your story about?

It's called "Cooking for Victory" - about a televised cook off between a woman who remembers war rationing and a celebrity chef, and the rules are that they have to use only ingredients available to wartime cooks (I'm a sucker for research - I even made a no egg carrot cake as practice). I guess I should mention that The People's Friend is a British magazine - one of those rare ones that actually buys lots of short stories!
