It’s a funny feeling! Although I was published under my Grandma’s name in the 1980s (thanks Grandma) this is different.
I sold a short story earlier this year to My Weekly. It was a story set in December and they said it would be published at Christmas. It wasn’t. Apparently it can be years before My Weekly uses a story they have bought. I was gutted. Ah well … perhaps next year …
I feel humbled.
And published at long last under my own name and not ‘Rose Foster’ or copyrighted ‘Kettering Borough Council’.
What a lovely Christmas present eh?
A huge thank you to all the people who voted for my story from all over the country, whoever you are.
