Well, I did what DonnaG did at the beginning of 2005 and here's my list of publications:

...
...
...

So ... am hoping to end 2006 by actually being able to write something after the colon!!

Not strictly, strictly true - I've been published in several specialist magazines, but as my aim is to be paid for something sometime I don't hold very much store by my voice in print to date. Still, nice to see it, isn't it? And it's a start!

The only thing I can really crow about in public is my little self-published nursery rhyme book called Sing Along with Bob-Along - available for extortionate and unaffordable prices via authorhouse.com and amazon - but if anybody would like a copy at cost price (8.50 incl. postage), then please PM me. One of my goals for this year is to attempt to find a publisher who will 'adopt' Bob-Along as she's a very successful little girl!!!

I also came third in the Whispers for Poetry international competition.


Caroline - nice idea to have this corner and thanks to TWI for setting it up. I LOVE reading about other people's successes and ventures and here's hoping 2006 sees this thread growing steadily by the month!!

Good luck, everybody,
Amanda

Shocked Don't knock all the "starts" Scribb, they all add up eventually.

Good luck with the "getting paid" thingy.

Hey, Amanda,

Don't knock what you've already achieved. I think you've made a great start. Keep it up, girl! Wink

You have your very own book out! You can hold it in your hand. That's a brilliant achievement.

Thank you - and shame on me! I forgot to mention my story in the Slingink Anthology and a story in the Slingink magazine. (Don't tell Rob)
