There is a saying that goes something like, “A high tide floats all boats.”  Meaning, one person’s success helps others succeed as well.  In this case, I just found out that one of my favorite editors, Rachel Kramer Bussel, has landed herself a terrific book deal.  I’m thrilled beyond words for her success because I’ve watched her work very hard to get to this point, going against convention and doing things that weren’t always practical, but worked for her.  And that’s key, isn’t it?  Taking the blood, sweat and tears and turning it into something magical despite the odds.  Rachel did it and I’m very happy for her.  It also gives me some hope for my own rather impractical goals and aspirations…

(Oh, and at the end of Rachel’s blog entry about her book sales she mentions the lineup for one of her forthcoming anthologies.  I’m happy to say my story made the final cut—which proves that a high tide really does float all boats—and makes three short story sales for me in less than two weeks.)
