I WON! I'm getting published!
I just posted about this over on my other blog too, but I know there are people here who don't follow that one, so I'll post about it here too because I am celebrating. You can read the official announcement here :-D
Yes, I wrote a western retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story. Because it's me. Westerns, westerns everywhere. They're all I write anymore (aside from the occasional bit of Combat! fanfic, of course), and I love them dearly. Thanks to lots of advice and encouragement from my writing friends, especially from my endlessly patient mentor, DKoren, I turned in a story I was really proud of, and I figured that even if I didn't win this contest, I would be able to find a home for my story somewhere. But I won! Yippee-ki-yay!
I've got quite a bit of editing to do in the next few months, of course, but this summer, people will be able to buy a book containing a story I wrote, and that is an absolute dream come true. Here's what it will look like:
Isn't it lovely? I love the fall-like color scheme. There will be an audio version too, which is so groovy. Anyway, I will probably post more about this in the future, but mostly over on Hamlette's Soliloquy, so if you want updates and such, please follow that blog too.
