Rejections need not defeat!
One after another the rejections came but, nevertheless, I persisted.
I tweaked, edited, submitted the story and waited, again.
How many times did I go through this ritual? To be honest, I’m not sure. But I did not quit.
However, I did reach a point where I did let go and moved on to another project.
All my persistence, tweaking, and editing paid off.
My story was selected for publication by Centum Press!

Wait, there’s more!
While this isn’t my first story to make the cut for publication, this is the first time I’ll share the publication stage with my sister. Wow! You heard right. One of my sisters, Sheila Good, is an amazing writer and her story Maggie’s New Beginning is also among the one hundred authors chosen by Centum Press for volume three.
Thanks for sharing in my excitement.
