Knowonder (.com) I'm Smelling Daisies

Today was the day I got to drop part of my title. I am no longer an aspiring writer, I will be published next month in Knowonder magazine. It's a non paying market, but it does count as a writing credit (and I get a few copies of the magazine). It has a paper version which is free. You do have to pay shipping. Or you can see it at If you like my story (please like my story) PEEP, PEEP, PEEP, you can vote for it. The top three favorite stories will get paid. (So please vote for me.)

Knowonder is a new magazine. Each month it has a few parenting articles and thirty stories. The purpose of the magazine is to promote reading to your children. As a former educator, I love the concept. Reading to your children is so beneficial. We started reading to Katherine before she was one. She has always scored in the highest percentages in English/reading on state mandated tests and currently is in a 9th grade class and she's only an eighth grader. (Proud Mon symndrome.)

So if you have a small child, log on to and print off a story a night to read to your little one.

Happy reading and thanks for reading my blog.
