"In anything, there has to be that moment of fasting, really, in order to enjoy the feast."
It's feasting time at the luxurious Kulptopia Writer's Retreat (my basement office). After a recent hungry period of almost daily rejections, the seeds have finally delivered a crop.
A few months ago, I was invited to submit a story to Z Publishing's 'America's Emerging Writers' anthology. That alone was noteworthy since I usually send my work unsolicited. Today, I received my pre-release copy that includes one of my favorite short stories. No edits were needed, so I sent it speedily back for publication.
Z Publishing transitioned into book publishing "in response to the major problem currently plaguing the publishing world: For writers, finding new readers can be tremendously difficult, and for readers, finding new talented authors with whom they identify is like searching for a needle in a haystack."
I will provide a link soon, and I hope you'll consider buying a copy. Stay tuned.
