Yes, today is a big day for me. This is my debut as a Published Writer. Wow, it’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that a Publisher accepted one of my stories and it is now published on ALFIE DOG FICTION. My short story “The Confession” was released today and two more stories are scheduled to be published in July.
This is also the debut for my new blog site, “A Dream Come True” which I have created to take readers along on my journey of becoming a successful published writer and (dare I say it) a published novelist.
So, all in all, a really exciting day. This is the first post I’ve written on this new site and I hope that you will feel free to look around and learn a little about me and my journey. If you read the pages posted on the blog site, you’ll discover the reasons for a second blog and a little about what I hope to accomplish with it.
Some of you have already honored me by following my personal blog “Grandma Says” and for that, I can’t express how much it has meant to me to be welcomed into your blogs and all the wonderful comments you have shared with me. I hope you will find this site helpful and motivating in your own personal journey of being a successful writer, poet, photographer or blogger. A lot of people helped me when I first started “Grandma Says” and now it’s time to return the favor.
So, my first post is to point all of your emerging writers and poets to check out the site of the Publisher, Alphie Dog Fiction. I had never submitted a story to be published before to an actual publisher, and let me tell you, these old knees were knocking. But, Alphie Dog Fiction made the submission process so simple and easy to follow.
Alphie Dog does offer payment for each download of your story, so check out their site. I’m not planning on getting rich from them, but if people start to look for your name, your a successful author! So, polish up those stories and if you think you have some that fit into this venue, get them submitted. When published, they are available online, on Kindle or download them to your iPhone. Neat, right?
Well, that’s all for now, it’s time for me to celebrate! I hope you’ll check out my new site and for those of you who have been faithful followers of “Grandma Says”, don’t think I’m going to be any less vocal than usual there.
