I’m So Pleased!

trumpet fanfare

Earlier this week, I received word from Sarah Findlay (Geek With A Pen) that my story, “Mornings Are Hardest,” has been chosen for inclusion in her upcoming one-off zine, “Silver Glass,” a literary and arts zine centered around the theme of mental illness. All profits from the zine’s sale will go to Action on Depression, a charity based in Scotland.

This is my first submission anywhere, and I am pretty excited to have my story included among those chosen for “Silver Glass.”

The story, “Mornings Are Hardest,” depicts the feelings of a woman caught in the throes of depression after a shattering event changes her life forever.

I’d like to thank Sarah for the opportunity to promote a sympathetic understanding of depression, and for the vote of confidence she’s given me by choosing to include “Mornings Are Hardest” in her zine, which will be available sometime during the summer.  Thanks very much, Sarah.

About Kate Loveton

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?

      Thanks, Heather! Heather is my writing partner – she keeps me on the straight and narrow. All the good things are as a result of her input; the not-so-good, entirely mine. 🙂
