You'll have to forgive my total excitement but my poem was accepted and I just received its publication date.
The poem is "Whiskey Kisses"
Its about my mother, every day poets will be publishing it on September 15th. I even get paid for it! Its my first paying publication. I'll probably post a couple reminders as the date draws closer, but I would love anyone who wants to read it and rate it. here is the site www.everydaypoets.com
Darn it though- does this mean I have to start over on my rejections? I had thirteen total before this one, If I start over counting, then I can always see how long the chain is in-between...or maybe I'll never get another publication in which case, the rejection collection keeps going...hmmm interesting development.
