Re: Success!

Re: Success!

Story out today at Persistent Visions. Art's Chair

Yeah, yeah, another Camelotian (Arthurian?) tale. But it's my version so it involves a Barcalounger and a sledgehammer. And probably profanity.

I'll let you know that story received 16 rejections and 2 never-made-it-to-pub acceptances before it finally made an appearance. And like amoskalik my first sale...
