So I get an email from someone asking if they can publish a short story I've written.
It's on the web already in a collection of ACG (aus.culture.gothic) short stories I compiled a year or so ago. All the pieces written by acg posters. I plan to do a hardcopy version at some point. The online collection is called subPlots - yes its a bunch of goths
But so this guy emails me and asks if he can use my story. Its a published thing, hardcopy, not a friend or me! its only a zine but one of my goals was to get something i'd written published independantly, not online or whatever and it looks like thats about to come true!
can you guess how i feel?
if you want to read my story thats been selected its here
In fact - please read it - and get back to me with comments, critisms, spelling errors etc - because i need to clean it up and email it off to the people that want to publish it!
