Thistles and Barley

I'm proud (and nervous) to announce that my short fantasy, Thistles and Barley, went live at the free online magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, the June 2009 issue (#18.)

This is such a neat magazine, and it's free.  Did I mention it's free?  Free to subscribe, free to view, and it's a not-for-profit, so if you donate, it's considered a charitable donation to the arts and you can write it off on your taxes.

But wait, there's more!
There's a forum just waiting to be taken over by passionate readers of fantasy.  It's quiet there now ... too quiet.  Just think of the opportunity to vent your spleen in regard to western (as in wild west) fantasies (there are two I know of in back issues that are very popular among readers.)  Tell the world my writing is dull, or deep, or pink.  Get into a discussion with the editor or authors about first person present.  Have a little fun with the assurance that, at least right now, it's not going to eat all your time for the next month (or year) to keep up on the topics you're interested in.  I love fledgling forums for that reason.  Plus, they're all shiny and uncluttered by trolls. (knock on wood)

So have a looksie.  I hope you enjoy what you find Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

You know, that's that's not a bad story, for a white girl.

Hoody Hoo! I started a discussion about your story...going to go see if it's been "trolled" yet...

HA! Trolls! Gotta love 'em.

Congrats (again). Congrats (yet again)!

Thanks Steve! Heh. I'm very happy that you took the time to read it.

Ah Melissa, you are a true friend. If trolls appear, is that a sign that I've arrived?

C.S., you're been so great! Thanks (again) for the awesome card!!
