For the record, I waited over eleven months for this acceptance, from date of submission to the email offering to buy the story. The last two stories I submitted to AHMM were rejected. It may be several months before the story makes its appearance in the magazine. I will repeat: it's worth the wait.
Real Cowgirls Don't Cry involves characters from my story The Last Real Cowboy, published by AHMM in September 2014.
The photo: I did not hit a bull's-eye during target practice last month. My husband did - 4 times. He's had lots more practice than me. That's what it takes, in target shooting or writing - lots and lots of practice, resulting in those moments of success. My sale of Real Cowgirls Don't Cry was a writerly bull's-eye!
