Level Up Anthology is Released (Talented Mers Competition is Officially Published!)

Yes! It has actually happened!!! I am officially published . . . annd announcing it a week late.😬 (But better late than never, am I right?) To celebrate, I’m going to show you a couple of graphics.

This first one is a quote graphic designed by Issabelle. (Didn’t she do such a fantabulous job??)

Next is a collage/graphic I designed.Β 

Finally, as a special way to celebrate, I created a short podcast talking about where the idea for my short story came from. I hope you’ll enjoy. πŸ™‚

Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement!!!! I love you guys! And if you’re interested in checking out Level UpΒ anthology, here’s a link to do so.Β 

Swimmingly yours,

    @Katherine, @Issabelle,

    I made a mistake.
    Long story short, I published a post and cannot take it back. I can, however, edit it.
    I was tagged for a challenge that required me to answer some questions from the previous poster and then tag eleven others to answer questions from me.

    I accidentally hit “publish now” instead of “publish later” on a post I was making and had not had the chance to ask you if you would like to participate in said challenge: I would happily edit you out if you wish. I had to edit in a caveat that I hadn’t asked you yet, but I cannot retract the post for some reason.

    If you’d like to look, here’s the post: https://rewriteswithafaeriepen.wordpress.com/2022/04/09/sunshine-blogger-tag/

    • Rose Q. Addams

      • Katherine

        (I’ve done that before so you’re not the only one!πŸ˜‰) No need to apologize. It’s not a problem at all. You’re welcome.

        Thank you!!! And I hope you have a nice day as well!!

    • Katherine
