I'm PUBLISHED!

I'm not here today BECAUSE THE FIRST STORY I SOLD IS PUBLISHED! I'm at the online magazine “lit”, one of Briane Pagel's blogs.  He pays for stories.

I'd REALLY appreciate your feedback in the comments there. It's only my second short story and I'd like your honest opinion.

Thanks!

~Tina


P.S The characters and events in this story are fictional. Any resemblance to real persons is purely coincidental.   Actually, the idea came from a creepy dream I had. The idea. Not the story.

Here I thought it was a true story! You are knocking it out of the park with your debut effort. Great writing!

I thought it was a great story. I might have preferred it in a different tense if I had any critique at all, but otherwise it was a fun read.

Congratulations, and cool that you even get paid for it. I've only published some science papers, and then I need to pay page charge to the publisher, in particular if there are many color figures.
