    Thank you very much! When I got home and read the email last night, I nearly fell off my chair onto the floor! Didn't know whether to laugh or cry! That being said, once the euphoria passed a bit, I knew that I now had no choice but to step up my game, and keep improving my writing and evolve it. This is just the first step on a long journey, but it is a relief to finally get this first step!

    I've never really thought about screenplays. Maybe someday!

    Always a pleasure to know someone who's served in the Forces!

    If you give me the exact name of the Magazine, and the date of publishing, I'll issue you a new shiny award!
    Wow! Sounds good! I think my piece will be published in the next couple of days. When I see that it's up, I will send you the info.

    Wonderful news! You go JJ!
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    This one is a not-for-profit publisher, but it opens the door to exposure and moderate circulation.

    I have sent work to profit and non-profit publications over the last year or so. A few bucks would
    be nice, but I'm in it for the exposure and recognition aspect. I could have all the money in the
    world, but it wouldn't buy me any respect.
