Sucker Literary Magazine Acceptance

YA Short Story Accepted

Holy cow! Just received word that SUCKER LITERARY MAGAZINE has accepted one of my YA short stories!!!

Here's me shouting the news from the rooftops:
(Okay, obviously not me, but this is how I feel!)

Here's me dancing a wee, "I'm ecstatic gig!"

(Okay, again not me. But funny picture, right?)

Now, here's me wearing cheese on my head:
(Yes, it's me, and has nothing to do with my story acceptance. It's just funny.)

But seriously, I'm completely psyched about having my story appear in the first edition of Sucker Literary Magazine. The Editor, Hannah Goodman is quite the success herself. Take a peek at her website & blog. Not to mention, she rocks as an Editor!

Thanks for celebrating with me!


  1. OMG! Congratulations!

    Cool cheese hat! I'm guessing not actually made of cheese right?

  2. Congrats, Candy! I remember when Sucker was just a glimmer in Hannah's lovely eye.

  3. This is such wonderful news! Congratulations. And I love that jig :-)

  4. Congratulations Candy, this is an amazing achievement and I celebrate with you!

  5. Woohoo! Congratulations! That's great news.

  6. Lol, Kamille, no it's not real cheese. But, I was born near the Wisconsin border (cheese-heads) of Illinois, and many of my family are huge Packer fans. I was made to try on the hat!

    Thank you, Angelina, Angela, Elizabeth and C.D. for your awesome comments!

    I personally consider it a huge accomplishment. Journals and magazines are tightening their belts and searching for the best submissions out there to meet their needs. It takes a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work to publish them.

    Hannah is doing a fab job of her Editorial duties, not to mention going over and beyond to mentor emerging writers who need a bit of guidance.

  7. It be cool to wear that hat around all day!

    I hope it all goes well for you!

  8. Congrats. I love all the photos too.

  9. Congrats! Male sure to post a link when it comes out.

  10. I will, Catherine! Looking forward to the plethora of talent SUCKER gathers for its first edition.

    Thanks for stopping in. :))

  11. Oh my goodness!!! Congratulations, Candy! I'm so proud and excited for you! This is just the beginning, I'm sure!

  12. I appreciate your congrats, Laura. Great to see you popping in. :))) BTW, I've signed up for your Lit. Legs subscription! Looking forward to staying in touch.
