I’ve just broken the record (well my own personal best) for fastest acceptance of a story. YES! Last week my friend Fave told me that Asia Literary Review seemed to publish stories similar to mine. So on Thursday I sent off “Broken” – a short piece about a Dalit boy. Finally got to my emails again yesterday afternoon and there were three from ALR accepting Broken for publication and wanting it as the opener for their December issue. YAY! Talked with Tim Cribb, one of their editors last night, all the way from Hong Kong. They are an excellent quality, international journal and I am pleased as punch (whatever that actually means).
