I mentioned some time ago that two of my short stories were accepted in an online literary magazine. I’m happy to share with you today, my publications in Black Mirror Magazine.
They published two of my flash fiction pieces.
“Those Little Words” is the story of a woman who wakes on her front porch. We follow her progress as she learns who she is and what happened to her life.
“Of Many, One” jumps in mid-story inside a dystopian world where children are not being born.
All my back-patting aside, you should stop by Black Mirror Magazine and give them some love. They’ve published lots of really great short stories and poetry.
You (and I) thought it would never happen. But I promised myself that, by year’s end, I would be published somewhere, somehow. That day is today. That place is Black Mirror Magazine.
You’ll have to wait until December to read the stories and see my name in digital gold lettering, but my author bio no longer says “currently unpublished.” It now reads “two published short stories in Black Mirror Magazine.”
I love that I’m published, but that’s not even the best part.
The best part is two fold:
1. I got to email another magazine to tell them I had to pull my story from their queue. It was so cool to be able to say, sorry I GOTS me a publication.
2. I’m not longer a writer. I’m an AUTHOR!
