You Got to Know When to Hold 'Em

March 1, 2008

The email came this morning. The first official submission by KC Kendricks has been accepted by Amber Quill Press for publication this summer.

Amber Quill only accepts submissions for two weeks out of the year in a contest format. Competition is stiff. I've been published under another name for several years, but would an unknown name stand a chance among 200 entries?

Obviously, yes. This is doubly affirming for me. In an industry where praise can be merely lip service, the writer constantly wonders if they actually live up to some of the hype. It's nice to know that occasionally we do.

Now there is much to do - a website to create, and promotional material to design. I'm excited - thrilled even - to be starting a new venture.
