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

Comment by B. Lynn Goodwin on June 5, 2014 at 2:07pm

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.

Thanks Catherine. I'll try it. :)

Comment by Catherine Stine on May 7, 2014 at 12:17pm

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.

Aww, thanks, Elizabeth! Glad you like Ruby's Fire, and you know how helpful reviews are to Indie authors!!! I agree that the loss of the YA LIt Chat site is huge. We should both "attend" one of the Twitter nights soon. :)

Comment by Elizabeth W Gibson on May 6, 2014 at 6:45pm

Thanks Catherine for confirming my fears.  The twitter chats are on Wed nights, but at a lost how to do the chat thingey. :) BTW, I love Ruby's Fire, I will put up a review on Amazon. 

While I have your attention, how do you connect with other YA writers?
