I’ve just received some fantastic news!
Good Golly Miss Molly, I am so excited that I may just blow my top!
I’ve been published in a Short Story Collection that is now available on Amazon Kindle, along with the stories and poetry of some other charming people.
This collection is called “The Busker” and all of the pieces are centred around either a singing busker or contain a musical theme.
My particular story is called “Prelude to Getting Led Out”, a minor comedic masterpiece that is chock full of instrumentally inspired phrases that I’m sure you will all love and cherish.
This story is not available on my blog and therefore is exclusive to this particular collection.
If you would like a copy (and are in the UK) then please click on the link below:-

If you are in the US then you can buy the collection on Amazon.com:-

Thank you for reading and I really hope you enjoy the collection.
Until next time my friends.

Congratulations! This is something to be truly proud of! I shall do the Happy Dance in your honor! You must be so excited! And just think, this is just the beginning of much more to come! 😀
Why thank you kindly Joanne – your Happy Dance is very much appreciated and it is indeed the best honour that anyone can bestow, although a Krispy Kreme donut comes close! First a poetry collection and now this, there is nothing quite like it and as you say there will be more to come! How about yourself, any published articles that I need to be aware of other than the ones on your blog?
nothing lately, my resume consists more along the lines of 5 cd’s worth of songs i wrote and sang, but i’m very determined with the writing thing, and when i set my mind to something….i’m stubborn 😀
but i will be sure to let you know when (not if, but when) it happens 🙂
That’s really quite fascinating Joanne – I myself started out writing lyrics and trying to make music, sometimes there are too many words for the songs to contain and they have to be found a home elsewhere! I see you like Joss Whedon – isn’t that episode of Buffy when they are singing all the time (Once More With Feeling) the best piece of television/musical ever? You have a great attitude, I’m sure you will be published soon, just be confident in your work and submit to as many places as possible 🙂 Oh and your poetry rocks too
I’ll get my copy mate.
Outstanding mate, cheers. I will buy yours too just now but you will have to be patient for me to read it!
Reblogged this on Through the Peacock's Eyes and commented:
Congratulations to my poetic duet partner David! He just had his short story published. If you like music and comedic short stories, check out this publication!
And Facebooked and Tweeted! 🙂
Wow! So kind of you Julianne, thank you! What an amazing day today has been! I’m so happy 🙂
I’m happy for you! The SuperMoon is a lucky moon for you. 😉
hi, hip horray- Good for YOU. I am grinning with joy. it looks like I am keeping good company theses days. That is four fellow bloggers who have published. maybe some courage will rub off on me
Thank you so much Melanie! It certainly has inspired me to write more for magazines and other submissions. Competitions are interesting but publications are so much more satisfying and there is probably a much higher chance that you will get in, since you usually aren’t fighting for just one slot/prize. Believe in yourself, get other people to critique/edit your work and you’ll quickly find yourself getting published. My Writers’ Circle helped me and I’m sure that you can find other like minded individuals. You just have to keep trying and you will succeed in the end. Carpe Diem!
this is the first time i have heard this advice. Actually I have submitted 17 short stories into Readwave. An editor, editor in training and other writers have critiqued my stuff.. I should concentrate on interacting more often.. THANK-YOU
What great news – fantastic, bit congrats 🙂
Hi Dave Very well done. Congratulations. Enjoy your poetry. Regards, Steve
Thank you Steve! Hope to meet up with you soon, might have to be in the evening or at the weekend. Chat to you soon.
This is great news. Congratulations
Cheers for that! The only way is up, up, up!
Congratulations! I’m going to add it to my cart for the next time I buy things from Amazon. Must feel great to get published.
Thank you Matt – very kind of you my boy, much appreciated. It certainly is great to be published externally by an independent publisher, I hope it to be the first of many. Keep writing mate and good things will come your way too, I guarantee it!
