I've been published!

My first work of short fiction has been published!
It's a ghostly love story.
You can read it here if you'd like:

I know it has nothing to do with cooking but I'm excited!

Wow, congratulations. I'm going to go read it and I'll let you know what I think!! Of course your excited, I would be too. Thank you for sharing your joy with us!!

That's pretty good. Are those the kind of stories that you like?
My favorites have always been Stephen King, Dean Koontz and John Saul, so, that played out like something they would write.

Thanks Pds, GB, and Aunt Dot!

Texasgirl, Thank you for the compliment about Stephen King, Koonts and Saul. That was the best compliment of my life. Yes, I love reading those types of stories. I got a small amount of money and a big amount of happiness!

Hamhock, Congratulations to you too!
I enjoyed your piece. I'm a relocated northerner living in NC and of course have a very different accent from most of my neighbors!
