First Request for Revision

What I have worked so hard to achieve may be only a few weeks away: today I received a request for revision on a story I submitted to Dragons, Knights & Angels (an online, Christian magazine). The story is called The Gates of Bliss. I'll be spending the next few days doing major revising to meet the editors' specifications, then I will resubmit it. This looks promising and, though it is not a guarantee of publication, it is a step farther than I was previously! Pray they'll like the rewrite!

DKA is good people. Best of luck to you.

BTW, I love your blog title. Every time I see it I pronounce it with the screaming flourish of P.T. Flea in A Bug's Life. "Now, for your entertainment... FLAMING DEATH!!"

Glad you love the title! By the way, how did you hear of my blog? I checked out yours and it looks like we are literally on opposite sides of the country!

I frequent The Sword Review and caught wind of your editorship with DEP. I think I followed a link in your signature or maybe Bill put the link in his introduction. My first sale was made to The Sword Review and I'm working up a couple of stories that may be suitable for DKA.

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
