Had my story "A Trick of the Mirror" picked up by Bewildering Stories:

Kewl :afro:  Didn't you win a comp with that story before, too, Donna? :scratch:  I remember you saying that you'd edited it and it'd placed somewhere... at least I think I do :smiley:

Well done  :smiley:

I think I've seen it before too. Still a very good story, though. Well done, Donna  :afro:

Excellent news, Donna.

...and it could get more ironic.

Robert secured a deal with Bewildering S for AB to edit and publish some of the best of them as paperbacks. So I might end up editing your story, Donna.

We are inextricably linked.

I'm sure Domma's thrilled  :lol: Very incestuous, this writing lark, eh?

I remember when you first introduced that story, that's really cool! Way to go Donna    :dance:

Wow! Thanks everybody. Yeah, this story was one of my very early ones. Rec'd an honourable mention in a City of Mississauga Library writing comp yonks ago.  It was what made me realize I was truly a writer-kinda-wannabe! No, seriously, Rosie & her lonely life truly set on my writer's path.

I posted it at BeWrite when I first joined. It created a tremendous amount of discussion which really blew me away because I'd never had so much feedback from a piece of my writing before.

Having it accepted at Bewildering Stories is very neat 'cause the editor lives in Guelph and we haven't met yet. We're hoping to get together in the near future & post some photos on their site.

And Geoff ... if this one gets considered for the anthology ... I would be extremely honoured! Especially if you're helping edit!!!


P.S. It was posted (for a while) over at Mysterical-E. But the link is now dead. [sigh]
