In Which I'm A Published Author!! (Again!!)

Woo Hoo!!

Guys, GUYS!

I've got news!

Well I guess this isn't news if you're friends with me on Twitter or FB. Or pay attention to my sidebar (which, der, who does that?) But even if you are, this includes UPDATED news!

I sold my short story SMOTHERED!




Dark Moon Digest, the horror quarterly, wanted to put out a YA edition. And, well, derp, I happened to have a YA horror story ready to go. And they had published me in the past. So submit I did.

And then on a day I was feeling low, I got an email saying they'd love to publish it! Yay! Confettis!

And now it's available for purchase!

And. AND! My name is listed on Amazon under the book description.

And. AND!! Jonathan Maberry, author of Rot & Ruin (which is fabulous, btw. You should read it) ALSO has a story in the collection! (Twin pointed out that that could mean he might read MY story. That hadn't even occurred to me)

So Woo! My first published story wasn't a fluke. AND this is a YA sale, which is awesome. AND it turns out I was just excited for this one when it arrived as I was my first one. Good to know the excitement doesn't fade.

*SPINS AND FLAILS*

That is frickin' awesome. Getting a short story published is really really hard. You are gonna go places with your fiction beautiful lady.

In answer to your comment on my blog, I see your point with King's books. Also, I think you're spot on with the marketing on Pacific Rim.
