Go Ahead, Take the "Back Roads"

I am beyond thrilled to see my story, "Back Roads," up at Every Day Fiction.

EDF is a great site for readers and writers. For readers - you get to start your day with a good story. You never know what genre it will be, what it will be about, if it will make you laugh or cry. It's like starting each day with a gift that you get to open simply by opening your email or the EDF window. For writers - you usually get a brief critique of your story by the editors whether it's accepted or not. Your published work is read by a ton of people, who give you feedback in the form of votes and comments. (Honestly, that last bit is both the most exciting and the most nerve-wracking part for me.)

If you check out "Back Roads," I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Reading!


  1. SOOOO exciting!!! I'm off to check it out :)

  2. Congrats!!

    And thanks as well -- I've actually been meaning to submit something to EDF, and I feel even more motivated after your discussion of the great feedback there.

  3. Jillian, thanks! And thank you for commenting over on the EDF site, too.

    Definitely give EDF a try. I've had stories accepted and not-accepted, and the feedback was helpful in all cases. :) (Don't forget to mention your results in the FFC String of 10 contest!)

  4. How wonderful, Madeline. I will check it out. Oh, and, Congrats!

  5. Thank you, Donna! Thanks, too, for your comment and vote over at EDF. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. :)

  6. I love riding on back roads. Hopefully I'll get back to reading this if I can kind of get more caught up. Congratulations on the story.

    I'll be linking to this blog for my letter M on my marketing series. Thanks for requesting it!
