One more chance for getting published

by - July 23, 2012

I won another chance to possibly get published.

It's really as simple as that.
I'd taken part in the ongoing competition at Fablery ( I say ongoing to get some of you fellow bloggers motivated to try it out ) and in my first attempt, won the 1st prize in a genre I'm not commonly associated with - Action & Adventure

The contest hosts a new genre every month and the winners of each genre get a chance to have their story published in the final anthology. 

Unlike blogposts and my earlier published stories, this is a pretty long tale, clocking in at close to 7500 words ( the word range for the contest is between 5000- 7500 words ) which actually suits my rambling style of narration, I guess.

Anyway, touchwood, hopefully early next year, you'll get to see the story in print. 

P.S. Advance warning : I received one more heart-warming news on the same day I got this which I'll post about in a few days so kindly bear with the self-congratulatory tone of this and the coming post as well.
