Congratulations, Starfish! Terrific news!
And congratulations, Allison, on your publications. Sounds like you're making good progress toward your goals.
Best wishes to you, kdgrier, on finding a place for your pieces. Thanks, Jan, for suggesting my ezine for the closed mags. Kd, you might also check my ezine for other possible places to sub.
Anthony, a lot more mags are asking for all rights than used to. All the Carus/Cobblestone mags do. Highlights is nice in that if they resell your piece, they'll share the profits with you even though the contract doesn't say that. And in most cases, they're more likely to have the opportunity to resell a piece than we authors are, so it's not necessarily a bad deal.
