Another Creative Writing Success

Yesterday, I shared one of my success stories in regards to a creative writing challenge.

Well, it's been an interesting week because a few hours after I found out about that win, I received an email about having three cat poems accepted for a book (Grey Wolfe Publishing). I did not want to let the cat out of the bag until now because I was waiting on the confirmation that all my release items were received. I am paranoid that way.

The book will be available in print and electronic formats, but I can't remember the release dates. I am sure it will be a while. Again, there is no monetary compensation.. Why would I bother then? Well, it's to help animals in need, plus the poems had previously been published on the now defunct Helium website. As you know, it is very difficult to re-publish material.

This will be my first time ever that any of my work will have been published in print.

Now, if I could just sell some of my informational articles!
