one for basement stories

Straight from my inbox:

Ms. Victoria,

Thanks for sending “Incidental Light” to Basement Stories. I really enjoyed reading your story, in particular, the relationship between the main character and the little brother. I also have to add in here that I loved your poem, “Maps,” in the latest issue of The Pedestal Magazine. Anyway, I’d like to publish “Incidental Light” in the second issue.


Best regards,

Carol Kirkman

I said:

Thank you very much for your kind words. (And must I say that this is the first time an editor said something nice about my submitted story AND a piece I’ve published elsewhere? This made my day.)

It did!

“Incidental Light” originally appeared in the Philippines Free Press. Watch this space. :)
