Very friendly

I'm very pleased to have a story in the current issue of The People's Friend, along with some virtual writing friends.

There will be another one of mine in a fortnight's time, and more to come in the future as I've just heard I've sold them two more.

See here for some tips from 'my' editor, for writing stories for The Friend.

Congratulations! Although I ve just had a return from Irelands Own, they did write me a lovely message. They said they liked my story and it was well written, but they are overly stocked with short stories at the moment. I ve submitted a couple to them before but never received a rely so I was pleased to get a response.

Congrats - I’m still waiting for an acceptance from PF, they got four of my stories currently. Do you know who best person to enquire about a short story I submitted back in October and an email as I posted it I’m not even sure it got there!

Excellent news. Well deserved success.

@ Chris – IO don't usually send rejections, so if they took the trouble to say they liked your writing you can be certain they mean it.


@ Charlie – TPF replies are taking longer than usual at the moment, but I'd have expected you to have heard about one sent last October. The email for queries is peoplesfriend@dcthomson.co.uk Just address it to 'the fiction team'.

Charlie said...

Great thanks Patsy and yeah maybe it got lost in post I guess!

Patsy said...

@ Charlie – or your reply didn't reach you. That can happen.

ChrisC said...

@patsy thank you Patsy. Can t believe I was happy with a rejection!

ChrisC said...

@charlie- I submitted to TPF last August and had a reply in May. I have another in since December that I m waiting to hear back on. Things taking a little longer at the moment I m guessing- Good luck!

Charlie said...

Oh yeah I didn’t think of that, thanks Patsy again.

Charlie said...

Thanks Chris that’s really encouraging and congrats on your successful submissions.

How exciting! That's wonderful, Patsy:)

I know it's all about the market research, but you nailed it, Patsy! Well done! I have sent in two this year. Feedback I got from a previous 'unsuccessful' was helpful.
