Does anyone have access to the Nov/Dec 2014 issue of Fun for Kidz? Their Facebook page says copies were mailed out on Wed. My story, "The Luck of the Owl," is supposed to be in it, but the overview on their website doesn't mention my story. :(

Hi Starfish,

I have access to Fun for Kidz online through my public library's Overdrive service. Unfortunately, the most recent issue available online is September. If no one responds to you, I'll keep checking till they post it and let you know. (Unless you find out that you can also check on overdrive through your public library--I'm not sure if every library has it.)

They contacted me about reprinting an owl story in that issue if I could resend the photos in color, which I did. But I never heard anymore- so I'm wondering if they did use it?- entitled A Home for the Homeless.   (Our library does not have that service.)

Thank you, Lisa! I appreciate that as I don't have access through my library.
Good luck to you, Cindy.

Starfish,  I received my contributor copies today.  I did not find your story in the issue. :(  I am surprised they did not let you know. I received notice when a story of mine did not get used in a Hopscotch issue- they said with the resizing of magazine they did not have room for it, but would keep it for another issue. Hopefully that is what they are doing for you.

Thank you, Cindy. Well that is very disappointing. How have you gotten in touch with them before? By mail? I tried their online contact form once a few months ago and called and left a message last week, just trying to find out about updated contracts. Or maybe I should try the email address I sent the stories to after acceptance?

I heard back from them. They were so nice and apologized because I was supposed to have received the same type of letter you did, Cindy. While that story won't be published, I was very happy to hear that my other short story will still be published in Jan 2015. So there's some positive news! :)

I have a few more in their pipeline. Guess it will be wait and see... and hope they make it in!  Glad they got in touch with you.

Sorry about the owl piece but yay on the Jan acceptance.

Cindy, now I'm sitting on pins and needles. My story, "An Owl In Your Pocket" is supposed to be in the issue, but I have not received my contributor's copy or a check yet. Can you double check that it's in there?

Thanks!  :cheesy
