|KL Noir: Blue|
One of the joys of the writing life is to see your work in print.
It isn’t really my greatest joy, because that really comes from finishing a story, or from going back and reading an old story and going, Ok, that’s not too bad.
But I also understand that part of being a writer is to reach readers, to have a reader imagine your story in their heads.
In the past few months, I saw bits and pieces of my writing in books and journals:
Talking about Rape in When Women Waken
An Orchestrated Ending in KL Noir : Blue ,which is an anthology of noir stories set in Malaysia. Love that a some of the other contributors are well known names in the current Malaysian crop of writers.
|Extinguished and Extinct|
Fire, Extinguished in Extinguished and Extinct, an anthology by Twelve Winters Press, USA, in which the other contributors range from PEN award winners, lecturers and editors, professors of creative writing to those with at least an MFA. I have the distinct suspicion that my story was chosen merely for its title.
Which of your works have come out in print recently? Could you link us to them so we can take a look?
Thank you for asking! http://lillian888.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/yet-more-good-news/
Congrats on your successes!!
Unfortunately am not a writer. I don't think I have it in me to get published at places other than my blog 🙁
But I do love reading fellow bloggers, who will turn into published writers one day. And that includes you 🙂
You are way too kind. Thank you for saying that 🙂 And yes, it's late, as in 2:15 A.M. Oops…..
What a kind thing to do. I have no links to anything I've published in print. I am just somebody who dabbles a bit in the blogging world. I'm okay with just being an obscure amateur amongst the professionals. I have achieved the interaction that I had wished for, even in the background.
Enjoy your Sunday, my good friend.
Gary you're fabulous, and you know it. The blogiverse wouldn't be the same without you!
We've had a few fabulous new releases come out this year; check out http://www.odysseybooks.com.au. We're also working on our first short story ezine, featuring writing by our authors, which we plan to release quarterly.
That sounds good. Off to check your website, thank you.
Hello! Thank you for coming by my blog and liking my post. Your blogs are excellent! As I'm new, I don't want to take advantage by posting my links in front of people who have been following you all along, but I will surely be back. Have a good one!
Please feel free to add your links, I'm sure this blog's audience would enjoy your books!
Two short stories and one poem have been published in the spring/summer issue of Magnets and Ladders. http://www.magnetsandladders.org.
Wow, that's great– look forward to reading them! Leave me a link here once they're up 🙂
Congratulations D. I think your story was chosen because you're a talented writer, who really works at her craft. I recently released Dreams can Kill, In 1970's amnesiac Sharron Alexander, recovering from a head wound doesn't remember who to trust http://amzn.to/19jRv8k & http://bit.ly/16WsEIM
Sounds like an intriguing premise!
brilliant way to introduce new people and help others .. you are a gem
Thanks, Bikram. Hope you'll check out a few links :).
Congrats on the publication of your recent pieces. All the hard work does pay off! I recently had an article published in the Good Men Project online magazine. It's not my first published piece but it's my first on this big of a stage. I was very excited to be a contributor in this fabulous arena! And it's about an issue near and dear to my heart: body image. Thanks for the opportunity to share it here! http://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/best-worst-f-words-jnord/
Thanks for sharing the link– off to read it! Congratulations!
Thanks! Let me know what you think…
I thought it was a very well-written article– I've left a comment, which is now up for moderation.
Damyanti, You are so loyal in giving my blog a heads-up. Here is my Amazon author page with my seven titles, available in ebook format as well as print. CreateSpace does a quality job.
If you ever want a guestpost about the pitfalls of writing historical fiction (particularly Ancient Egypt), I'd be happy to visit.
Definitely, Inge, pls do write me an email, and check out the guest post guidelines 🙂
That's so cool. I'd like to submit anthology pieces to spread myself out.
My publisher recently released my YA novel SNIP, SNIP REVENGE. http://www.amazon.com/Snip-Revenge-Medeia-Sharif-ebook/dp/B00JX1QBFU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399628970&sr=8-1&keywords=snip%2C+snip+revenge
I've seen this one, Medeia. Congratulations!
Love the cover of Extinguished and Extinct. I recognize that long-gone critter, but can't remember its name off the top of my head.
That's a Tasmanian Tiger, extinct since 1936.
I finally got off my duff and did a print edition of my post-apocalyptic novel Radio Hope.
That's excellent, Sean! Need a hand with promotions, let me know 🙂
Fingers crossed. I hope I'll will have a link to give you in the near future.
I hope so too, Michelle! In fact, I know so 🙂
And, hey, titles are important, so you have something chosen because of a good title, then I'd say that's a win!
Lol I hope it wasn't because of the title, Andrew 🙂
This is the latest thing:
Go have a cookie!
Thanks Andrew– and I linked to you latest post on my other blog http://damyantiwrites.wordpress.com — and it is beginning to generate a discussion– would you like to take part?
Here are a few: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/jjbotta . Thanks!
Thank you, will go look them up now 🙂
I truly appreciate your offer. The link to my print versions on Amazon is given below:
Fiza, these look interesting! Off to check them out.
Congratulations! That's awesome!!! I think your story was chosen because you're a talented writer. I'm not convinced that an MFA makes one a better writer necessarily. You can learn the mechanics of writing ad nauseum, but voice is something you either have or don't.
Thanks, Stephanie. I hope you're right in my case :).
I love that you've opened this up! I think I want to do a post like this for all the writers I know too. 🙂 Very inspiring and helpful!
I have a novel coming out in June and I self-pubbed a poetry book through Lulu earlier this year. Light Reflections is a collage of every day poetry, reflecting on life moments. http://www.lulu.com/shop/tyrean-martinson/light-reflections/paperback/product-21439571.html
Let me know when the novel comes out, and if you would like it promoted on my blogs 🙂
Off to check out your link.
