Story Acceptance: “Jumping Jamie”

I got word this week that a children’s story I wrote called “Jumping Jamie” has been accepted for publication in Stories For Children Magazine. (Their site seems to be down at the moment, but hopefully they’ll get that sorted out soon!)

The story is about a little boy named Jamie who wishes he could jump like his cat can.

The issue my story will be in is coming out in April or May 2012. I’ll link to it once it’s up.

Volume Two in the Kindle Store, and a Publication

A couple of writing-related updates today. First, if you haven’t seen it already, Fifty-Word Stories: Volume Two is now available in the Kindle Store! Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005MJG3BO. It’s only $2.99, and even if you don’t own a Kindle you can still read it on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android phone, etc., by downloading the great free Kindle app.

In other news, a Twitter-length story of mine called “Brushstrokes” was posted to OneFortyFiction today. You can read it here. Hope you enjoy it! It was a fun one to write, and evolved a lot from the first version into the published one. With such a short length limit, you have to be really sure that every single word is working as hard as it can to get the story across.

I’ll have another update tomorrow with some details about the things I’ve written this week and what I’ve been doing with them.
