My First Published Work – Etched in Steel

I always told myself that I was bad at writing short stories because I’m a long-winded writer.  I tried a few times, but always gave up in the end and stuck what I thought I could do, which was long fiction only.  But thanks to my writing and critique group, I had to force myself to try it.  Really try it.  I struggled at first, but with their help, knowledge, encouragement, and constructive criticism, I started to get better at writing short form.  

Now, all that has paid off.  I am pleased to announce that I received an email yesterday that my first published short story was released!  Yes, that means I am officially a published author, a dream come true.  It’s the first stepping stone towards the publication of novels.

My short story, Etched in Steel, can be found in Michigan’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction, by Z Publishing. 

Here’s a link to Amazon where you can purchase a paperback copy: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1725001144/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534115166&sr=8-1&keywords=michigan%27s+emerging+writers

On to the next stepping stone.  Thank you for the encouragement and support!
