I am incredibly excited to share a small piece of publication news with you all today!

I recently submitted a piece to The Regal Fox, a site for sharing writing of all kinds, of which pertain to a certain theme (or themes). When I saw that one of the current themes was bookish, I knew that  had a story that fitted it perfectly. I wrote The Beginning quite some time ago, and I don’t really mind if it’s egotistical to say that I love it. I think, when writers are so often filled with self deprecation and the feeling of not being good enough, it is important to know and to own the moments when we feel proud and in love with something we’ve written.

So, I was extremely humbled and squealy when Amanda and Jess (the amazing girls who run The Regal Fox) said they wanted to publish my story. This is the first time something of mine has been shared beyond this blog, or friends and family. I really and truly hope you enjoy it, and you can find it right here.

All my love,

    How absolutely beautiful, love! I can’t voice how proud of you I am – and I have no doubt that this is just the beginning of what will be an endless stream of gorgeous publications in the future. I think my favourite part of this piece was the last line – “his voice is like low thunder on a summer’s evening, and she smiles, because she knows that this is just the beginning” – how true & peaceful & lovely. Congratulations. There is no one who deserves this more than you. <3

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Topaz <3 I have to admit that the last line is my favourite part, as well. Greta minds think alike, yes? Thank you endlessly <3

    How amazing! I’ve heard of The Regal Fox and it’s so great you’ve been published over there and right after I finish commenting, I’m off to read your piece. I think you’re absolutely right through, it’s important to take those moments to be proud of what you’re doing or writing, so savour it up, lovely!

    I’ve already told you how happy I am about this and for you and how much I enjoyed your story (all the bookish references, all the words, all the characters, all of it), so this is basically a super helpful comment of me telling you how I’ve already told you this stuff. But it’s on a different day, so still completely helpful and relevant. *winks*

    I’m just so happy that this happened to/for you and especially happy because of how much you love this piece. When something you truly, truly love, love more than the other things you’ve created and love, when it gets to see the light of other people’s eyes it’s just so incredibly special and I’m so incredibly proud of you. *hugs* xx
