What you can do with old stories?

I’m do re-do’s of my older works and think it’s worth it to ‘refresh’ these older tales. I may just sub them to a publisher in another decade or so…

Submit that story, even if published elsewhere.

Now you can dust off those great stories and send them to a new home. Again and again.

And I’ve got just the list for you!

That’s right, there are publishers that accept reprints. So, if you’ve got a story you would like to see published again.

Check out this article…

25 Literary Journals that Accept Reprints by Emily Harstone

Do you have a great story stuck in no-mans land? 

Have you tried resubmitting a published story before? 

Are you going to try to go for a reprint?

Or do you think every story should be one and done?

Tuesday Musings: Snow

For some, a four-letter-word, but for me it’s a word with four letters.

It’s a cold day here and we are waiting for snow. Though; that said, the weather folks have it on their prediction map for a week, it takes a day to fall, and 10 seconds to melt; usually the next day. LOL

I love snow. Ever since I was a kid growing up in the foothills of the Appalachians and getting foot-deep snows; I’ve loved it.

There’s just something magical about watching the big flakes fly and softly, noiselessly, covering everything with their crisp, white, cold blanket. It silences everything and all the ugliness is suddenly brightened and beautified.

Now, driving in it is quite another issue; and I’ve seen and been in my share of fishtailing, sliding, and avoiding being T-boned. It’s maddening! But once you’re safely home and are with loved ones; it is a wonderful feeling.

 

What you don’t know about success

Great advice!

Cristian Mihai

Success is a word gets thrown around a lot. It’s become meaningless. We all want it and the definition of success is different for everyone.

Some of us want a beautiful family life. Some of us want a successful business. Some of us want lots of money so we can exchange it for goods and services.

To make matters worse, society has developed a set of tools to help you become comfortable. To have what you want, when you want it, which is right here, right now.

We have lost track of who we are supposed to be. Life and success are harsh. Unless you are will to fight like hell for what you want, then you’ll never be successful.

Consider this your wake up call!

It’s time to stop fantasizing and do what you have to do to get what you want.

Whatever your definition of success is, you’ll need…

Less than two weeks til Turkey Day??? Wow…plus my life is calming down a little and I’ll have a lot less time to think about things…I landed a day job that starts in three weeks. So…let’s relish the time we have 🙂

This week, I’m going to start posting from This Time Around (which is a rework of Refugees which is the sequel to For the Heart of Phillip). Drama was everywhere in the first book; but it’s been tamed in this volume, which follows Robert and David’s journey after things didn’t go as planned in book one.

I hope you enjoy! This book is coming December 1st!

This Time Around 1

To set the stage: (spoiler alert)!!! In the first book, Robert and Phillip break up and David and Andrew break up. 

This is David coming home to find out that Andrew has left him:

It was 9 p.m. on a warm, early September night. Thirty-one-year-old David Griffin pulled up into the driveway of his house. Of course, it wasn’t just his now—he’d had his lover, Andrew Bradley-Horner living there for some time too, along with Andrew’s adorable daughter, Andrea.

He’d finally come off his shift as a physical therapist in the rehabilitation hospital after working a grueling twelve hour shift.  He was tired, but felt he was in a diplomatic enough mood to deal with his boyfriend. It’d been a rough weekend for them after David had asked Andrew to marry him and the only reply he’d received was Andrew’s vomiting on the lawn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Out today! Upstaged 3: Duet

Duet6x9

There’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the best—and the worst—in people.

Billy and Vince are getting married. The Von is taking time off to celebrate and the gang are all together, with a few additions.

The Caliendo family make quite an impression, especially Cousin Angel, but it’s Connor’s new boyfriend, Shaun who really takes the biscuit. Fists fly, but that’s par for the course in an Italian wedding, isn’t it?

When the dust settles, a tentative relationship begins that might finally give Angel what he’s always dreamed of – acceptance and love.

To set the stage; this (and last week’s post are of Vince on the morning of his wedding to his beloved Billy.  His roomie (and ex-bf, also his friend and best man) Asher is there to talk him through the coming celebration.

He smiled at his friend and best man and hugged him. “Good morning, Asher. Today’s the day!”

“Yeah, it is. No need to ask if you’re excited. Sit down and let me get you some breakfast. And no arguments”—he quickly added as Vince opened his mouth to complain—“I’m not having you throw up in the car because you’re too excited to eat. Toast and coffee aren’t going to kill you.”

Vince laughed and rubbed his neck. “Yes, Asher.”
