"Breathe" @ Golden Visions Magazine

Do good things come to those who wait?

Apparently so -- at least for my story "Breathe." This little speculative tale was rejected a total of eight times (and only twice favorably)  before it reached the editors of Golden Visions Magazine where, after just a slight rewrite (500 words or so added), they accepted it with open arms. 

This story has had a fairly long shelf life, I must admit. I wrote it over a decade ago when I was in college, and I dug it out of my virtual trunk in '09 when I started my Journey into the Published Land. Two markets held onto it for quite some time last year, only to release it in the end. Regardless, "Breathe" is finally making its world debut today.

But if you're in the mood for something less than 1,500 words, you can check out my tale "Cheater" at Postcard Shorts, a cool little venue. Each story there has to be 250 words or less -- just about what would fit on a postcard, depending on the size of your penmanship. (Penman... what?)
