All Good Things

They say all good things come to those who wait.
Well I waited...

Perhaps not as patiently as I some, but I waited...
And it arrived today in the CPL magazine.

I am delighted (and ridiculously chuffed that my story rubs shoulders with others written by the likes of such award winning novelists as Andrew McGowan). The illustrator Rasoul Hudda even got the pose my cat adopts exactly.

Let's hope it is a portent of things to come!


  1. That's brilliant, Madeleine, well done! How lovely. It's so exciting seeing your story in print isn't it? I was just posting about my cat story too, which arrived a few days ago. Must be something in the air!
    Here's to more successes! Cheers! x

  2. Yes congrats too, there must be something in the air.

  3. That's fantastic, Madeleine. I'm so pleased for you!

    My first paid story will be in issue 98 of Yours. 21st September, I think. I can't wait to see what illustrations they put with it.

  4. I shall look out for it Ellie. Congrats! How exciting! I was so inspired I wrote another story about my cats yesterday called 'The Princess & the Porker!' LOL.

  5. Brilliant news - congratulations, Madeleine. And congratualations on your appearance in Writers' Forum, too. Yes, I found you. And hope you enjoy your Moleskine notebook.
