Article Query Accepted!

Recently, I've been submitting articles and queries to Christian magazines like Christianity Today, Guideposts, and Today's Christian Woman. The topic of my interest is in online attractions. Last Friday, I sent in a query to TCW. That public slushpile was filtered to the assistant editor by Tuesday. (I thought this was fast). Today, that editor wrote me saying she was interested in my "intriguing query letter." (I thought this was really fast!)

So I'm putting a halt to my WIP work to hammer out this article. I was so excited about it and I wanted to share with my supportive blogging community! A byline is a byline, and I'll take one (if possible) in a national magazine! :)

Wish me luck when I send in my manuscript (editor's term, not mine...I still call them an article from my journalism days) this weekend!
