To get my novels straight in my head, I sometimes write short stories about them to work out voice, character traits, tone, etc. Well, that’s what I did here (minus lover boy), and I blew through this story so fast I barely breathed. I immediately fell in love with my feisty DARK ANGEL, Lucy, and her jerk of a brother, Damon.
In a moment of blind passion for the story (and recklessness) I scoured the internet for magazines that would love Lucy. I found Sucker Literary Magazine, who were conveniently (I thought) looking for dark, edgy YA. But the deadline for submission was in a couple days . . .Do I? Or Don’t I?
