A Weird Few Days
The last few days have been a bit too weird to be believable. For months friends have been telling me, “Al, you are a good writer. People love your stories.”
Now I have to accept it. My previous reluctance to admit, even the remote possibility of it, comes from years of being told I was a failure.
All pale in comparison with the delights I have known since my good friends Paula Shene, and Gwen Steel introduced me to this fabulous magazine at Angie’s Diary.
On Saturday evening, while looking at the web page, I noted a suspense magazine advert on here.
I enquired about the chances of getting an article in as Pat Canella’s stories are the old-fashioned Mike Hammer type tale, only with a female lead.
I also mentioned my Chronicles series, never really expecting a reply. On Sunday evening, I got a shock. I received a reply saying the magazine was very interested in my work.
The next pleasant surprise was my friend Linda Barrett-Johnson who runs the online magazine A long story short in Montana, told me she wanted to publish the second article of mine. It will be online from Monday the 7th of May.
The final topping of weirdness is my American Civil War vampire story (Holding Richmond) is going well on Amazon.
