What Readers Are Saying…

Not our kind of story–not a compelling piece for me. Thanks again. Best of luck with this. Sincerely, Rick Taubold, Fabula Argentea Magazine

I liked “Tell Me”, but it might be a bit hard to do that layout in WordPress.  I also like “Ice” and I think I might be able to do that one. I like these more abstractly ones.  Do you have any others I can take a look at? Thanks for your interest in swifts & slows. – Randee Silv Editor Arteidolia

Timothy, thanks for letting me read this story! The dialogue is so effective here — it really reveals a lot about the characters. I’m sorry to say no, but it’s not quite right for Milk Candy. Thanks again for submitting. Good luck with this piece! Many thanks for trusting us with your words.                               – Cathy Ulrich – Milk Candy Review
