Congratulations!

Um, this is possibly a really stupid question. Is the "True Romance" magazine, the same one that would come up in the first two or three results if I did a search for "true romance magazine" on Google?

I only started reading here yesterday, I don't know anyone. If I'm talking stupid it's because, I AM STUPID.

I did a search, all I could see were girls in wedding dresses and men fighting their reactions to look like they were there voluntarily.

I like your blog, I'm working my way through it, but I draw the line at "Best Bridal Shower Ever" articles, just to hunt out one of your stories.

If you get the same results I do with Google, then it's the same magazine. True Romance is one of a group of five confession magazines published in the U.S. by Dorchester Publishing. "Confessions" are a particular genre of women's fiction in which the stories are all written in the first person by a female narrator and presented as if actually true.

If you're looking for some of my fiction, check out my Web site at www.CrimeFictionWriter.com. I have a partial list of stories published in a variety of genres and links to a few that are available on-line.

CONGRATS!

Congratulations, Michael!

Wasn't August the month you were worried might break your perfect streak of having something published every month for MANY years?

Michael Bracken said...

Yep. But, after posting my concern, I sold three stories scheduled for August. This is the first of the three to appear.

I have one story tentatively scheduled for September, but nothing yet scheduled for October.

Susanne said...

I'm not worried. October is sure to be filled with treats not tricks. Just a question of how many stories you'll see published before Halloween!

I am going to start telling everyone that Michael and I are cowriters on anything I come up with so that maybe something gets accepted.

This probably isn't a good year to affiliate yourself with me, Kevin. My rejection rate is much higher than in past years.
