My short story, “The Human Gift,” may soon be published in the Istanbul Literary Review, an online litmag with a circulation of around 22 million atoms. Actually, i don’t know the circulation, but it’s been around for 4 years. It will be my very first publication if it happens. I haven’t gotten my hopes up completely yet, as you can probably tell, but it is by far the most positive response I have ever received from any literary magazine I have ever submitted to. The editors sent me words of appreciation and a few edits they would like me to approve. Nothing definite, but promising as hell. I’ll keep you informed. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship….with success. WE SHALL SEA.
