I communicated with Neal James, author, and editor, in the "Aspiring Writers" group on Linkedin.com Neal asked members of this group to consider writing stories for his website. I responded by inquiring about requirements and deadlines.
Neal was professional and supportive. He had suggestions for the Flash Fiction piece. It was wonderful to have an established novelist interested in my work.
At the end of June, this link: http://bit.ly/GuestAuthor00717 appeared in my email box. My heart leaped! Joy! Joy! Neal James is featuring me as his July 2014 "Guest Writer."
I am thrilled and delighted. Being published on The Neal James Website has expanded my audience. This generous and supportive act gives new writers an opportunity to expand beyond borders.
Thank you Neal for your gracious invitation. This blog and the story written for your website is connected and integrated with all my social media platforms. May your generosity towards me prove to enrich your life.
