I have been sending out my story, 'Ten Years in a Shoebox' for what seems like a year, but I just got an acceptance from Dark Reveries. The editor said she loved the twist at the end, that it was wonderfully done!

Finally! I thought that story was going to the graveyard. (it will be out in their Halloween issue, booga, booga!)

It's really my favorite short story, I'm stoked!

Congrats! :)

And thanks for posting this, I just sent out one of my favorites that I've been tempted to retire more than once. Maybe it's not hopeless after all. :)

That's right! I knew the story was good, dammit, and if you have that feeling about it, don't give up on it. This was the first time I had submitted to a dark fiction market, I was sending it to lit mags. I think I was just hitting the wrong genre.

Good luck!

Fantastic news, Denise!

You can't beat an acceptance and you can't beat validation that actually, you were right, the story is good... so double the pleasure!

Cheesy grins for the rest of the day.
