The Happy Dance

Blog Posted:5/19/2013 6:45:00 PM
Just checking in to share my happiness, my small group of determined writers has been trudging along daily writing and daily submitting. And OH YES we have some rejections! But we have made progress as well, Yesha, Joann, Dane, Catie and I have all had some acceptances!

Please check out my verse on Daily Love Magazine
TODAY published Ensorcelled All & on the 21st they will publish The Shores of Bombay

Jellyfish Whispers
will publish a new verse you have not read called A Stream of Laughter on May 26

Leaves of Ink
will publish another poem of mine Firebrand on the 31st of this month.

and on July 19 Pyrokinection Magazine will publish two more new verses; Amusing & A Supreme Summer [yup it'll make you sing Baby Love]

So please join me in the HAPPY DANCE!

Thanks so much for sharing my joy. Light & Love

    Lol... I'm a no no, when it comes to singing... Your book "Heaven and Hell in a Nutshell" is it a small book, with a red cover? I think I may have seen it in a bookstore in the city of Long Beach, Ca.
