I’m officially a published writer!

I’m delighted to have my short story ‘Warfighter, Peacemaker’ featured in Spillwords Press! It was written two years ago and has always been a personal favourite of mine; I’m so deeply grateful to have my work accepted for digital publication. Huge thank you to everyone who’s encouraged and inspired me on my writing journey!

    1. Thanks, Mark! 🙂 Glad the submissions and rejections finally paid off eventually – hopefully it’ll open the doors for writing competitions in the future 🤞


      1. I’d expect that it will! There are a lot of publishing venues out there. It’s a matter of doing to the research to find the right home for a particular piece. Time-consuming but worth it!

  1. There you go, Tom – I’m off WP for a couple of weeks because work is so busy and you go and get a piece published! I’ll consider taking more time off in the future. In all seriousness, congrats. It really was only a matter of time and I’m certain that this will be the first of many.

    1. Thanks so much, mate – it’s been a huge confidence boost for my writing, and hopefully it’ll open some new doors for competitions and other submissions elsewhere 🙂


      1. As well as Literally Stories, are there any other good journals/websites you’ve been recently submitting to who’ve been encouraging about your stories [even if they haven’t accepted them]?

      2. Flashback Fiction accepted a piece of mine a couple of weeks back for this Autumn. Good turnaround time, excellent feedback, and they are wanting an interview and a video of me reading my piece for their website. Maybe give them a go?

      3. Sounds like a good plan! 🙂 Be interesting to see if I can shave any stories down to the 500 word limit. Well done for getting yours out there – what era did you focus on?
