Congratulations to Mary for getting nominated for a Pushcart, to Sohan for landing a book deal, and to Deborah who gets a much-deserved cameo on the CBC

Note: If you’ve gotten yourself an agent, had a story (or a book!) published or you’ve placed in a writing contest or have any other news, send me an email so I can share your success and we can all encourage each other. And be sure to let know if you have something for "Writer to Writer" (if you're looking for a writers' group or beta readers, for examples). Email me at:

I just learned from the editor of The Ocotillo Review that he has nominated my short story The Yarnabomber for Pushcart!
Just had to share the exciting news – this has been a dream of mine for forever! Now if only my story gets into the Pushcart anthology....
Yay, Mary!! The Pushcart Prize is an extremely prestigious prize awarded by Pushcart Press. It recognizes the best "poetry, short stories, essays, memoirs, or stand-alone excerpts from novels” published in little magazines and small presses from around the world over the previous year. The winners and top nominees are published in an annual anthology. Even being nominated is a huge honor.
For information on submitting to The Ocotillo Review (plus 21 other great markets for your essays, short fiction and whatnot), see here.
A scene from Still Standing – Cobalt
Hi, Brian.
Here is the link for the CBC show Still Standing featuring the town my book store is in: Cobalt. The program is about 21 minutes long, and great fun. Also, I make brief appearances in it!
Hope all is well.

Hello, Brian.
New Land, Same Sky by C Fong Hsiung,
published by Mawenzi House
I am so happy to tell you that my novel was acquired by Mawenzi House of Toronto in October and will be published under the title The Paper Lions on July 1, 2009. Sam Hiyate {of The Rights Factory} handled the deal.
Speaking Tiger, an Indian Publisher acquired English rights for India on November 3. They plan to publish it in the fall of 2019. Kanishka Gupte brokered the deal in association with The Rights Factory.
I want to thank you for all that I learned in your seminars that made me a better writer and recommend other writers to attend your seminars and begin to follow your blog The Quick Brown Fox.
Hoping to meet you soon.
Best regards,
Sohan Koonar
