Linda Spencer makes the cover of Sibyl, Mark Young self-publishes, and Gloria Hansen publishes all over the place

Hi, Brian.
I'm so thrilled and honoured to be featured on the cover of the Aug/Sept 2014 issue of Sibyl Magazine, with my poem "Sun-Sets and Sun-Rises” featured on page 6. Check out my blog and links to the magazine! 
Special thanks to Change Your Life Photography for the amazing photo that Sibyl chose to feature.

Hi, Brian.
Just wanted to update you on some of my writing news. I have been sharing my novel Risk on Wattpad at the rate of a few chapters a week and they have made it one of their "featured stories". It has been getting lots of votes and great comments since the beginning, but has really started generating a ton of reads since they featured it.
At the same time, I'm in the process of self-publishing my novel Once Were Friends, which is now available on Amazon, Google Play and Smashwords, with other platforms pending.
You may remember giving me a full manuscript critique on an earlier version of this book and your comments and advice were instrumental in getting it to its current form. Much appreciated! I have thanked you on the Acknowledgements page of the book.
Thanks also for putting on all those workshops of yours I've been to over the years. They are always helpful and a great inspiration to better writing.

Hi, Brian:
First of all, can’t wait to get the newest newsletter. It is Sooo jam-packed with articles and info, it is a three-cupsa-coffee read. Much appreciated by myself and the Elliot Lake writing circle.
I am not sure if I already told you that I have a story in Commuterlit’s anthology. Titled “Honor Thy Root,” it’s about what can happen to a young lady who has one too many on an airplane. I also placed the same story in Near to the Knuckle, a writing journal in the UK.
I also recently have been accepted for yet another article titled “Angel in Waiting” in Chicken Soup for the Soul, the 2014 Christmas in Canada series. That makes five acceptances and what a thrill to be published amid writers from all over the world. Living proof that Northern Ontario puts out more than snow drifts and highway construction! It will be released mid-October.
Thank you again for this colorful and readable blog — and for the newsletter summary. We devour every word!
