I LOVE the way that sounds. Its my first time, my maiden voyage, a virgin no more. Even if the publication is a small magazine with a circulation of 10,000 readers and even if I receive as payment two complimentary copies of the magazine, what a divine message to see in your e-mail inbox. The absolute best part of this is that this article was about my beloved owl, Athena. She danced into my heart and now I get to share her with others.
For a writer, to have someone love your work enough to put it in their publication and align association with them, is a seriously sweet treat. And for a publication to understand and love this owl enough to share it with their readers makes my heart sing. Thank you Selena Fox.
