Congrats to...

Check this market out...
When we returned home Saturday evening from our camping adventure, I hurried to my "puter" and checked my email. Among the "junk" was a very nice acceptance letter from Mysterical-e . My short story will either be in their fall or winter issue. It's a nice little ezine all mystery lovers will enjoy so check it out.

So, now you have your tasks for the week...assess your goals, send out a something and enjoy a little down time with a good story.

Thank you for the kudos, and congratulations to you for your acceptance letter.
