So as a some of you know, Dh is a writer, he writes alot of short stories and has completed a novella as well as working on on novel, he also belong to a local writers group that meets a couple times a month and gives each other a helping hand in read and giving feedback on their writing idea’s, styles etc.
Well, he had never really put anything in to be published, he was writing for himself more then anything, and then took a seminar on how to get published this year and so while I was at mom’s, he sent in his first story and within a very short time, he got a no.. something every writer will get, however he wrote a peice for a collection of short stories by canadian authers for superhero’s and supervillins and he sent it in, and waited and waited and the first draft came back with edits and request for rewrites on this or that, and he did so and yesterday, he got the letter back that its a YES!
They had a few extra little edits, nothing that bothered him at all, and so his first paid and published story will be going out to book stores in the early part of 2013, and he is currently being writing a zombie story for a different short story collection, and if he can pull it together around the story ark that we have figured out, it will rock! Got to ask the zombie queen (that would be me) for feedback on this and that.. I know what is normal and I know what will pull the fans and yet what is just different enough that its not the same old, same old.. and I think we have come up with something that could really fly! ;P
So proud of my guy!
