After the Rain

Wow, absolutely stoked to be able to report that my short-story, When the Bone-Men Come, has been accepted for Fablecroft's "After the Rain" Anthology, due out Easter next year. To be honest, I didn't think much of that story, and I even got stuck into writing another one to submit in its place. As fate would have it, I ran out of time to edit that new one and had to send the original instead. It goes to show, we're almost always the worst judges of our own work.

This might mean a trip to Perth for Natcon next year, where the book will be launched. I've been waiting for an excuse to go to one of these things, and it looks like I well and truly have one. Roll on Easter!

Congrats to Teresa

Teresa Frohock has been a long-standing OWW crit-partner and commenter here on the blog, and a fellow battler in this whole sometimes-exhilarating-mostly-just-damn-hard-work thing they call writing.

Today Teresa announced that her debut novel, Miserere: An Autumn Tale, is being published by Night-Shade Books in July 2011. I know for a fact that she's worked unbelievably hard for this, and it's terrific to see her dedication so well rewarded.

You can drop over and read more about it here.

Congrats again Teresa!
