Victory...Well, Third Place
Today, I got both good news and bad. My story PEEP, PEEP, PEEP won third place among the readers of Knowonder magazine. My first income. I'm anxiously awaiting my check for $100. I plan on making a copy of it and framing in with back ground paper that says, "Yes, you can." LOL
The bad news is that Knowonder does not look like it's going to make it unless some investors come along. The main reason I submitted to them was because of their platform. The focus of the magazine is to emphasize the importance of reading to your children. For those of you who don't know about the magazine, it had both an on line version or a print version. If you ordered a print version, you just paid for shipping. The magazine had 30 stories for children in it each month and a few parenting articles. I am so sad for the staff and for Phillip Chipping, the founder. They had a great concept. I still have my fingers crossed that someone will join Phillip in financing this wonderful magazine.
For those of you who were able to vote for me, thank you so much. To the staff at Knowonder, you have a great concept and I have my fingers crossed for you.
