Earlier today I submitted a short story (the introduction from the Coaching Approach book) to an online author website and received this reply:
On behalf of Ariel Chart’s editors, I am pleased to announce the acceptance of your submission, "Giving Advice" into our literary journal! Your submission is an engaging piece of fiction, funny, and well-written. You show a great understanding of the craft and apply it with wit.
Looking for more short stories, I discovered eight that I wrote in 2011 and 2012 which I had forgotten about.
So I made them into a book. It took 4 hours. See, it doesn't take all day to write a book.
Here is a sample.
