Share a link to where you submitted your work (pitched/submitted in the month of January 2012) for a chance to win two I are a writer! pens.

Writers put a lot of unsung effort into their books and stories. We get the hard work of polishing and revision done, then move on to the painful bit, the submission process. We nail our courage to the sticking post and send our work to agents and/or editors, then wait weeks, months, even years, for a response. All too often, all we get in return is a variation of 'Sorry, not right for us at this time' (if we even get a reply).

All that hard work and nothing to show for it.

Not any more!
Starting in January, I'm introducing a new, monthly feature, PITCHER'S CORNER, here on
An Englishman in New Jersey.

Here's how it works:
If you submit a story or novel to a paying publication in the month of January 2012 (even if it only pays in contributer copies), tell us the title of the story/novel, the publication, publisher, or literary agency you sent it to, AND share a link to the relevant submission page In a comment below.

Every month, a random commenter will win two 'I are a writer!' pens, as seen in the pic below.

Best of luck to all who take part.  

ETA:  And the January winner is: Phil Giunta (aka )
Congrats, Phil :)  Let me have your address and I'll mail your pens

Not sure if this counts but my second paranormal mystery novel, By Your Side, was submitted to Firebringer Press on Saturday, 14 January. Firebringer is the small press that published my first novel, Testing the Prisoner.
http://www.firebringerpress.com. They do not have a submission page at this time as it is by invitation only (for now).

That works for me.

Thanks for sharing, Phil :)

Of course, I have no shortage of pens, or mugs, for that matter,
but I like to keep these things sporting, so I'll mention that I sent
"Letting Each Tomorrow Slap Us in the Face"
to Dark Faith 2.

You're welcome, and thank you.
I can always use a couple more pens.

Knowing me, I may get stickers with my amazon site,
stick 'em on the pens,
and reuse the pens as promotional items myeslf...

You know, as the comments pile up,
this could easily become a
Pitchers' Mound...

I submitted two stories to Chicken Soup for the Soul this month. I also found out a story I sent in last year is under final consideration for an anthology. The great circle of life continues...
