Just a quick note to say that I had a short story I submitted to a publisher accepted a week or so back now. Not sure when I can say more about it but it was great to have someone enthused enough by something I wrote to want to put it in an anthology.

It's been a while since I've actively been putting short story submissions out there but it really helps with that lonely working away at a novel which you know no-one will see for several months until finished to get that boost. Without it you can get to wondering if your writing is any good or not.

Will give more detail when I can.


  1. Excellent news Phil, and I sympathise with the lonely novel bit - mine was begun in 2011 and I'm on the third major re-write. Good things are a) I joined WriteWords 'MS swap read/writing' group' and had five people read at least the first 14 chapters and give me valuable feedback, and b) I'm not sick of reading it yet!
    Stay with it.
