No, I had a TON of excitement!! I had my very first actual published piece!
It is a bit of Christmas tradition memoir. I entered the Sparkle and Shine contest at Our Write Side. This site is my go to for weekly word prompts and tremendous support. They offer many types of author help.
Anyway. I entered my story, and I was a winner!
My story is published in their Steampunk New Year's Newsletter. Take a look! There are a lot of good holiday stories by many great authors.
I love this site, not just because they published me, but because of the wonderful support offered by all the admins. With a special shout out to Stephanie Ayers for pushing me when I need it most!
