Love Letters: Where your fellow writers are getting published

I hope all is well with you. I am pleased to tell you that the Globe ran my article today under the Travel - Tripping section. 
I hasten to add that the title was not my idea! I had a discreet "Tryst with a Buffalo" but it was changed to their rather cruder, "You gotta pee in the Serengeti, you gotta get past me." 
Also, my "fifteen feet" was changed to "six metres." I dont think in the metric system when I am being chased by a buffalo!

The Globe and Mail invites submissions for its Tripping column. This is a chance for readers to share their adventures – those times when, far from what’s familiar, you must improvise in the midst of a wild travel moment. They are the stories you can’t wait to tell when you get home.To share your 500-word travel adventure, email it to: travel@globeandmail.com

Hi, Brian.
Happy New Year and all that! That was a lovely review of Shades of Teale (here). I appreciate Francine's efforts very much!
By the way, I mention Shades of Teale in an upcoming interview I did for the Oprah Winfrey Network'S "Life Story Project!" My episode will be airing February 13 at 9:00 pm on OWN. (They also put a shot of me hugging the interviewer in the show promo. You can watch the promo here.

Hi, Brian.
Connie Cook also had a story

Hi, Brian.
I wanted to update you on recent happenings. Last year, I was a finalist in the Romance Writers’ of America’s  Golden Heart contest, and this year I was first runner up in the Unpublished Daphne du Maurier Contest.
I also won the 2012 Valley Forge RWA’s Sheila Contest, the Denver RWA’s Unsinkable Molly Contest, I found out I also won the Molly! Plus I just found out I won the Gold Ticket round in the Toronto RWA’s Catherine Contest. The category winners were judged by Kristin Nelson, and I was the final winner. I now have my manuscript read by – get this – Kelley Armstrong. She's to critique my first 3 chapters.
It's been a great year, and the best part is I have a New York agent requesting my story. Keeping fingers crossed!
Take good care, Brian. And thanks again for the encouragement along the way!

Hi, Brian.
I hope all is well with you. I notified you before that my contest entry "The Visit" was selected by Marco Polo magazine as part of their 100x500 contest. A couple of entries, including mine, were published before the contest closed. 
You were kind enough to include a link on your site, thanks.
I was quite surprised to find out that only 24 stories were accepted, so I feel quite honoured.
