Great job Debs!!!
The Bookends Review recently published Debra Danz’s short story, Boxes in Heaven.
Debs relates that she submitted the story to five publishers before it found a home with The Bookends Review. And this is an important takeaway of Debs sharing her writing journey: some publishers will “get” our writing style, our unique voice and some won’t. Just as we find one author more to our liking than another, so do publishing houses and writing contests. We need to find those with whom we are simpatico, the yin to our yang so to speak. A non-acceptance (not rejection) letter only means our writing landed in an incompatible in-box.
Good going Debs for believing in your story and being confident enough to try a different avenue!! Your comments encourage other writers looking for publication outlets. And now for the best part, Debs has provided the link to her moving tale. Take a read but be prepared for your breath to catch in your throat…
