Short Story Publication

So excited today. Fever, one of the stories from my Opal Pratt collection, has been accepted for inclusion in the Editor's Choice edition of Belle Reve Literary Journal. The journal is dedicated to Southern writers and Southern writing. It has an online presence in addition to the periodic hard copy publications. My Opal collection certainly falls into that category. In Fever, Opal, a plain, plump middle-aged spinster living in rural Mississippi, must confront a feverish illness, an ice storm, and familiar apparitions. I'll let you know when it's published. I'm very excited for this step toward my goal for the short story collection.
