I was a bit surprised to discover that my story “Ice” was included last week in Issue 3 of the UK online magazine The Red Line, here. Nobody told me about it, and if I hadn’t happened to Google myself last night I wouldn’t have known.
Sounds odd, maybe, but this kind of thing has happened to me twice (that I know of) before. I shortlisted in the PRISM International short fiction contest once, and had a story included in an anthology once, and both times the only way I found out was via Google. Sheesh! Anyway, writers, I encourage you to get in the habit of Googling yourself now and then. It’s amazing what you find out.
