Thanks to everyone who has submitted work to be considered for publication in this first and very special edition of "Gem Street."
We treasure each of these stories because we know the tremendous amount of work that goes into crafting short fiction. We understand the joys but also the frustration and long hours, the rewriting and hair-pulling faced by writers each time they contemplate the page.
For us the tough part has begun; selecting from the broad range of high-calibre stories received.
Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year.
