A Promise Made. Finally Kept.
Back on July 12, I made a cryptic post on my Facebook page that said “Got a lit mag acceptance in the mail today. Sa-weet! A nice way to end the week. Details as soon as I can share!”
And then tick-tock, calendar flip, no details were to be shared.
Recently a friend asked, “oh hey, what ever happened with that?”
Well, here’s what happened: I wanted to lay back on details so as not to tick off the editor of the magazine. They like having first crack at this stuff, so I kept it to myself.
My story was supposed to be published in the Winter (Oct/Nov/Dec) issue, so I was biding my time.
Turns out the editor decided to push up the publication, so my story actually appeared in the Fall (July/Aug/Sept) issue.
Editors are going to do what they need and I have ZERO problem with that. The editor chose to publish MY little ol’ story. With ink. In a literary magazine. Yes!
And since the publication date has come and gone, I don’t feel bad about sharing that story with you now.
Without further ado, here is my story “What Leibniz Never Learned” as published in The Storyteller magazine.
You can also click on the magazine cover, seen in the right column section title “As Seen In” on this page.
