The Huffington Post Featured my Fiction!

I'm delighted (thrilled/over-the-moon/excited/all of the above) that THE HUFFINGTON POST has published a short story of mine called THE WEIGHT OF A FEATHER. 

You can read it free on the HuffPost by clicking on this link

Wikipedia  claims that the HuffPost is "is ranked the most powerful blog in the world by The Observer

Whether it is or isn't, I'm still enjoying the thrill of seeing my work published by an international and well-reputed organisation such as The HuffPost.

Hi Judy .. I loved your story of the weighted feather - it is so evocative and sad .. but a necessity in life at times.

So pleased The Huffington Post picked the story up .. now wonder you're buzzing from the excitement ..

Enjoy that buzz .. cheers Hilary

I loved your short story. I will be Tweeting it and Facebooking it later on. Thanks for your recent comments on my post on masculinity. Much appreciated. You certainly deserved the opportunity you got from the Huff-Post. It's a good publication. I've got the app, too! :-)

Greetings from London.

Thanks Cuban, and thanks for the re-tweeting of it! Glad you enjoyed the read. :) And your post on masculinity was essential - as you can see it's a hot button of mine and I climbed off my soap box with difficulty! :)
