A Tale of Two Sales

artsy
Well, okay, not much of a tale here. However, I just "signed" the contracts on my two latest sales, so it is time to share the happy shiny!

1. My first reprint sale! "The Fowler's Daughter", first published in Shroud Magazine, Issue 3, Summer 2008 is going to be in Ekaterina Sedia's awesome Bewere the Night anthology. When I first learned of this anthology, I waffled heavily on whether my story was even vaguely appropriate for it since I consider the tale more of a modern day fairy tale interpretation than a werecreature story. But then poor Ekaterina Sedia posted on her LJ that she was being inundated with werewolf tales and really needed something different, and her comments sections mentioned some folk sending in somewhat less traditional were-transformation stories, so I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot (because everyone should love "were-geese"!). I'm super happy now that I did because this is going to be an awesome anthology.  :)

2. "They Gather in the Green" is a story that has long given me trouble, just from finding the right title to wondering if I was insane for having begun it with a brother telling his sister a story. But then Crossed Genres opened up submissions for their tragedy issue, and this story is nothing if not tragedy piled upon tragedy. I mean, the darned thing even says it's a tragedy within the story itself! How tragic! And thus this story has found its tragically awesome home.


I love making sales, and these two are great starts to the year. Okay, technically one was made on the 30th of December, but I'm still counting it for making this year awesome.

On the downside, I really need to write some new short stories (the novel has been a bit distracting). I only have two left in my submissions queue right now! Eep!

Yeah, it is a pretty good feeling (even if I count the one from Dec 30th as last year as I ought to, it is still a good feeling!). :)
