Hi Lynn, yes it is. Stone Crowns is a literary magazine that focuses on YA.

Congratulations. Is it a YA story?

Hi all! I just wanted to pop over and share some good news: I've had a short story published in the fourth issue of Stone Crowns Literary Magazine! You can check it out, and other stories too, at http://stonecrowns.com. It's free to read. I'd love to hear what you think if you read it.

Oh, the chat thing is easy-get on Twitter at the allotted time on Wed eve, and then join in by using the hashtag #YALitchat along with your posts and you'll be directed to the conversation from that hashtag.
