A few months ago my short story Mister Hobson’s Mustache got selected by Writer’s Digest for publication in their 16th Annual Writer’s Digest Short Short Story Competition Collection and today I got the book.
My very first publication in English! Isn’t it beautiful? And, coincidentally, also my very first publication in print. Two milestones all wrapped up in this neatly layouted short story anthology.
Many thanks to Writer’s Digest for selecting my short out of over 6700 entries. And many thanks to my neighbors at the Silbersteinstraße in Berlin: I found the package on the floor next to my mailbox. It was ripped open, but the book was still there! Ain’t I lucky?
