The Eye Published!

Z Publishing Science Fiction and Fantasy Colorado

Traditional publishing takes for-ev-er! Those novels you so love from popular authors can take up to two years to produce even if the author writes the book in six months. Because of this, my brain has come to expect long wait times. If I’ve submitted a story, I move on to my next piece while I wait because it could be months to hear from a publication, if I hear back at all. It’s not uncommon if a story is not accepted for the publication to simply not respond. A lack of response is a ‘No,’ but you have to wait the allotted amount of time to know if they’re simply not responding or if they’re taking their time.

Anyway, all of this is to say, Z Publications moves really fast for a publishing house. A couple weeks ago I let you know they accepted my short story, The Eye, for one of their 2019 publications. At the time, I didn’t have a date of publication to share. I figured it would be in the fall at the earliest.

Last week, I received an email letting me know my expectation was waaaaaay off. Z Publication’s short story anthology, America’s Emerging Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers: Colorado, has now been published! EEEEK. If I’d known if would come out this soon, I’d have waited to share in the first place, but that’s now in the past.

You can find links to the anthology on Amazon and on Z Publication’s website below if you’re interested.

Thank you as always for sharing in this adventure with me!

Blessings,

Very, very, and I mean very rarely will a publication seek out writers for their book or magazine.

Most of the time, a writer must submit to a publication and hope their writing is accepted. As any writer knows, this is a trial in patience and waiting.

So when I received an email from Z Publishing House, I first thought it was spam or a scam…but, it was asking me to submit to one of its Anthologies and, as a writer, it’s good form to check it out.

Thank God I did. Z Publishing House features up-and-coming writers from the various states. That’s why they search out and email writers, because they are specifically looking for those who are not as well known.

So I’m thrilled to announce one of my short stories, Wizard’s Coffee, will appear in Z Publishing’s Colorado’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology of Fiction.

It’s up for pre-order right now and will be published this month. Eeeek!
