Nice company, Swails! Bravo!

Thanks! I'm still shocked and awed that my name is along side folks like Timothy Zahn and Mike Stackpole.

Congrats X

Did I miss you posting about this sale earlier and forget to congratulate you?

Thanks, Y. I don't think I ever made an announcement per se. A few months ago I was asked to submit a story. I did and was asked to do a rewrite. I'd been waiting to hear back "yea or nay" on the rewrite when Stephen, one of the editors, asked for a "bio and 'why I wrote it' blurb." When I sent him that, I said, "Assuming I made the antho with my rewrite, here's the goods" and he wrote back, "Oh! You made it! We wouldn't have asked for rewrites if we didn't think we could use the piece." So I've been accepted for a few weeks but just found out ... Wednesday? ... for sure. It's a small press (Popcorn Press) and I didn't get paid up front but will be paid a split of the royalties. It's been made clear that most sales will be author-generated ... so once I get a pub date and/or an ISBN number I need to talk with my local booksellers. I'm starting to get a little nervous thinking about it.
