Check it out everyone…I’ve been honored to have my short urban fantasy, “Mythical”,
edited by the one and only, Piers Anthony!!!
Greetings Fellow Readers and Writers!
I’d like to start by thanking Piers again for being such a down-to-earth guy and for being so directly helpful with the evolution of this story. I had originally written “Mythical”, hoping as most writers do, that I would see the numbers shoot up immediately and within months the rest of the world would enjoy the story as much as I do. However, we all know that the reality of writing stories is much different, particularly for those new to the craft of fiction, such as myself.
I repeatedly submitted the story to any fantasy outlet I could find, only to receive rejection after rejection in my inbox. The valuable thing about those rejections is that some of them were accompanied by snippets of advice, which I applied right away. Even so, the story was still dead in the water, as far as downloads were concerned, regardless of how much I tried to promote it within the urban fantasy genre that I was targeting.
Piers Anthony was kind enough to provide me some advise for new writers a couple of years ago on this blog, and I later reached out to him to get his opinion on the story. Just as I suspected, there was a good story in there, but it wasn’t being told well. Now, thanks to some great direction and editing from the legend himself, “Mythical” has become the story I always wanted it to be: a story I can be proud of.
