Welcome to the Jungle

Hello there!

I'm Joe, and as you can tell by the description over to the right, I am a writer. I haven't made that first professional sale yet, but I'm working on it. I have had one acceptance, however: "Goldie", a story about a mother and son through the years as told from the perspective of their Christmas ornaments, was accepted by Midwestern Literary Magazine (though I believe they just go by MLM now...) and published in the February edition of their ezine. And very soon, the story will feature in their print anthology HANGING BY THREADS. Obviously, I'm thrilled by this.

I suppose I should answer all the of the standard questions--why I write, what inspires me, etc.--and I will, in due time. Right now I'm just trying to get started on this darn blog. I had a livejournal account previously, but according to a terminally-hip writer friend of mine, Livejournal is for losers, and all the Cool Kids hang out here at Blogspot. Or Blogger. I guess. I dunno.

See ya around!


  1. Welcome to the dark side!
    Like Rainedrop, I looked at your LJ blog but couldn't comment or anything.
    I'll add you to my blog list as soon as I can make one in my template.

  2. Thanks so much, Chazz! Glad to have you aboard! Your blog looks way better than mine!
