Thumbs up I'm Going to be Published!!!!!!!!

I am very excited... I wrote a short story based on the long story I've been posting and it's going to be publihsed in a collection of stories. The collection is being published by a local self publisher that a friend of mine works with. Needless to say I was a bit surprised when she told me that I was one of the 30 out of 75 chosen!!

Excellent work Kater!

It puts my 5 recent poetic acceptances into insignificance compared to your effort.

I'd love to hear the details when it is published.

I know a few of the details at this point. The book will be called "Gratitude with Attitude" and they're planning on publishing in time for Christmas. I'll post the website as soon as it get's published so that people can order a copy if they want.
