Oddly, I've had two inquiries recently about how I got my work published in magazines and books. With little time to respond, I forwarded this blog post from over a year ago. I am reposting for those who may also be interested. Part two of my interview with Pat contains the basic information and my suggestions. There is also gobs of similar information online if you take a bit of time to research.
