I'm SOOOO excited, and I just have to share my excitement with you! :-)
Back in June/July, I submitted two short stories to online journals; one went to a new online journal called the "Women in Horror Annual" and the other went to "Monsters and the Monstrous", which has been around for a few years. Last Friday, I got an e-mail from one of the editors of the "Women in Horror Annual" that my story has been accepted for publication! Of course, it will need some editing, but hey, that will be a good learning experience for me. As long as they don't want to turn it into a completely different story with a different ending, I'm sure we can work it out. ;-)
Technically, this isn't my first time being published, as I have had original poetry included in two printed pagan books, but they were published under my Craft name, and at least one probably had a much smaller readership. This will be published under my legal name, and I will be able to include it on my resume/CV. So this one actually means a lot more to me!
Here is their website, if you're interested: Women in Horror Annual
And here is a cool pic, just because... ;-)
