I’m Published!

10885572_1632378190329559_4754062938500301205_nHurray!!  Today is a long-anticipated day for me.  My first published story is now available to read in the newly released April issue of Havok Magazine!!  *squee!*

The theme of the issue is “Crossover Chaos,” combining speculative genres into unique and unexpected tales.  I was super excited to see this cover for the first time and realize that the second story they chose to feature was my own – “pirates and fairies after the same booty” is a reference to my flash story, “Fall Like a Stone” – what a thrill!

I know it’s a flash piece, so it’s small and short, but it’s my first baby step into the world of being a published author, so I’m giddy with excitement over this!

YAY!  I’m published! 😀 😀

I am so thankful to God for providing me with the inspiration for this story, and blessing its path into the world, and also for the friends and beta readers who helped me hone the piece into the story it is now.  Thank you all!

If you’re interested in reading the story, click the photo of the magazine cover – it’ll take you to a page where you can purchase a digital or print copy of this issue. 🙂  I hope you enjoy!

    I’m very proud of you! It must be great to know and see the Lord bringing your calling closer!

    When someone is born/bred to do the work of his life he may never get that feeling. I’m happy for you Bethany!!

    • Thank you, Jared!! It’s definitely a joy! I’ve been aspiring to publication since I was about 10 years old, so that’s 14 years of learning and striving toward that goal. This may be a short story, but it’s representative of so much to me. Thanks for rejoicing with me! 🙂


I love to hear your thoughts!
