Published: She Has Been Here  
A revamped short story of mine, She Has Been Here, has been published by The Fringe Magazine (ezine, and it has been chosen to be published in pdf format at a later date). This has two important features to it, for me. Firstly, She Has Been Here is one of those stories where I have a a special love for, and so I am pleased indeed to publish it. I had trouble publishing it over some time, in part because it is very hard to classify - is it a love story? A fantasy? A ghost story? Historical Fiction? Maybe all, perhaps even more. I also have to admit that I have become a better writer (hey, practice makes perfect), and with a small polish, it is a better story - I can thank a few editors from other magazines who rejected my story, and taking the trouble to say a few words of constructive criticism.

The second reason why I am especially pleased is because The Fringe is an Australian magazine - remarkably, my first Australian publishing effort.

Congratulations!! I'm glad you got some actual feedback instead of the form rejections. I keep wanting to submit more stuff, but I'm never sure which and where. I need to scope out Duotrope. :)

Keep up the spree!
