I had a story accepted almost three years ago at a small, feminist indie e-zine called the Lorelei Signal. Unfortunately, the publisher went on indefinite hiatus shortly thereafter. Carol is good people, don't get me wrong. Things just happen, as my own life can attest. An so, this story has been listed on my publications … Continue reading The Lorelei Signal is Returning!
I've finally made it back to the podcast.
I’m so glad this story found a home.
Here is a story I’ve been trying for a long time to get published. Perhaps the format was off-putting for some publishers, or maybe the subject matter?
