Aquila is obsessed with magic and illusions, he’s also slowly going insane.  Growing up the son of a noble, Aquila quickly found out that life is just one big game, with everyone trying to fool everyone else.  Disgusted with people he decided to travel the world, and when he comes back he buys a theater with one thought in mind.  To perform the grandest illusion of them all.

Ivy

The Boy

So this past year I submitted a short story I wrote to Tuscany Press.  Every year they have a contest, they accept short stories, novels, novellas and young adult stories.  If you win this contest then you have the chance to have your work published.  For the short stories they put them together in a collection of stories.  Anyway, it’s pretty cool.

I submitted my story “The Boy”, and I didn’t win.     I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed, but on the whole I’m excited. Which might seem crazy.  But I know I can make my story even better than it was when I submitted it.

This has been a great learning experience!    Someday my story will be published, today just isn’t that day.
