Congratulations Gully!

Just got some fanstastic news from a blog and writer's group buddy. Her name is Jeanne Follett, also known as "Gully." I'll let her tell you in her own words.

"I am going to have two stories and one piece of doggerel published
in "Alaska Women Speak," the summer edition. Wow. I submitted these
three pieces and they are going to publish all three! You guys have
already been subjected to them: "Frozen Grapes," " and the earth has
music" (the Stellar's Jay), and "A June without Summer."

"Alaska Women Speak" is a quarterly, published since 1992, and is
devoted to "the exchange of ideas, literature, art and heart talk, as
well as a statewide update of women's political and social ideas and
activities." It is available in Alaska at Barnes and Noble, Borders
and independent bookstores around Alaska. I think I saw it on
Amazon, too.

I'm preening my feathers……. Finally, a publishing credit."
