Tuesday, January 18th, 2005 • 7 Comments on Little Bitty Happy News
I just received an e-mail from an editor accepting one of my stories for a forthcoming anthology. Not only is this my first writing sale of 2005, it is especially exciting because both the editor and publisher are new to me. It’s always nice to break in with a new publishing house, but the editor sounds terrific and I’m really looking forward to working with her. Details, of course, will be forthcoming once the contract is signed.
Oh! And the part that makes me grin the most: this is a ghost story. Have I mentioned how much I love ghost stories? It’s very, very cool to have sold one. The last ghost story I sold was in 1982. I was fifteen at the time, so I think this one might be a little bit better. Heh.
Sadly, everyone I know is asleep and I have no one with whom to share my happy little news, so some stranger reading this in Bakersfield, California will be the first to know.
