My very first article is finally in print! It's a personal essay, and it came out recently in Purpose, which is a Menonite Sunday school paper. I still haven't seen it myself--I guess it's taking a while for my copy to arrive. But, I know the article has been read by someone...an editor from another paper emailed me asking for reprint rights :).
Also, I will finally have a fiction piece published. Christian Fiction Online Magazine has accepted a short story of mine for their August issue. I am SO excited about this. I do love writing personal essays, and am incredibly thankful that I've had success in selling nearly every one I've written so far. But my passion still lies in fiction. My main goal is to have my novels published, and getting a short story published is definitely a step in the right direction there. I'll post the link to the story when the August issue of CFOM comes out. In the meantime, check out the April issue at http://christianfictiononlinemagazine.com/home.html.

I got my copies of the article today. I'm so happy :).
Update again....I just noticed tonight that the copies are for the July issue. So if you get the Mennonite paper Purpose, look for me in July :).
