“Your writing is expressive, mature, and multi-layered, and it was my particular pleasure to bring it to readers.”
Stevan V. Nikolic
After eight rejections, my story “Dog’s Love” has found a home at Adelaide Literary Magazine. One editor liked it but said it was just “too sad.” My wife, Juli-Ann, relayed most of this story to me and allowed me to embellish. The part that forms the climax was told to me at least half a dozen times before I figured there was obviously something powerful that belonged in a short story.
Please give it a read in issue #15 of Adelaide. The magazine will also be available for sale on Amazon.
