My First Sale!


I just got an email from Every Day Fiction, rejecting my 900-word short story, Sticks And Stones.   It stung (as all rejections should), but they offered some nice comments.  



About a minute later, I got another email from them, telling me they'd accepted my 100 word flash fiction, Wild West Justice.  My first ever cashy-money-type sale.  So, Yay me!

Yay boy -- any rejection that comes with good comments is just a step or so under a sale/acceptance, so GOOD ON YOU!
