I haven’t been submitting my writing for publication as regularly as I used to, so it was a bit of a shock to receive an acceptance from the Storyscape Journal.
Old Bishnu’s Feet is a story set in India about religious devotion/brainwashing, family, taboo, and the harsh truths of love. It is a deeply personal story for me, because I struggle with faith. I’ve lost it in the last few years, and in some ways, this story is born out of that loss.
(Besides this story, I have other exciting publication news, which will hopefully be out this month!)
What have you published lately? I’m adding a Linky list, open till Saturday, and invite you all to add links to your recently published pieces. Anything in the last few months is great.
The list is moderated so it will not have spam, so if you want to browse through the list, read and encourage others, you’re most welcome. The link will remain up, till further notice. I loved the experience with reading posts on my last linky– check out the wonderful novels, short stories and essays shared there!
Here’s a linky for this week:
In the linky list above, please do the following:
- Link to the article/ novel/ blog post/ essay you want read, and not to your blog. I’ll delete links that lead to home pages and websites.
- In the Blog Title part of the Link form, add the genre and the title (For instance: Novel: The Old Man and the Sea).
Do NOT do the following:
- Do not add spam links. (I’ll delete them during moderation)
- Do not add homepage links to Websites/ Blogs.
- Do not add more than one link. (The list is moderated, so your link will appear only after I’ve cleared it. This is to discourage spammers.)
- Do not ask me to edit/ make changes to the list. (I edit typos without being prompted, don’t worry).
I hope to have a few things to read by the weekend!
