I'm thrilled to officially announce my FIRST SALE EVER!

"Mudlarks" is a 9100-word historical fantasy and is scheduled to appear in the January issue of the Intergalactic Medicine Show (aka any day now....)

Thanks all!

Chuck - that's actually a really funny story. This is my story from boot camp. After everyone finished telling me all the things I'd done wrong and tearing it to pieces, OSC looked at me and said something like, "Here's proof that even a publishable story doesn't have to be perfect. Any editor would be an idiot not to snap this up if it crossed his desk."

I didn't think he was serious, so he kept going: "No really, I was talking to Edmund about this over breakfast. We want it for IGMS. But you can send it somewhere else first, like WotF and I won't be offended."

Um, hello?? I said yes on the spot. (And then I sat on the news for six months because I still didn't quite believe it was happening until the check came in the mail! :-P )

Now get a story into Q02 WOTF and rep Hatrack with a winner. IGMS pub will look sweet on your author bio.

Did you write it there, from start to finish, or was it something you had been working on?

I brainstormed the idea there during the workshop phase. Bringing in preconceived story ideas sort of defeats the purpose of the boot camp experience. But I did rewrite the ending after boot camp - my original ending was written at 2 A.M. after I'd been writing for pretty much 24 straight hours. Um, nuff said, really.

Kitti, I meant to pass on my congratulations earlier.

I've not gotten any interested nibbles from IGMS, as of yet.

Of course, I've never read an issue either, so I am shooting in the dark with that market.
