Congratulations Michael, Helen, Alex and Strycher... Anyone I've missed? Things are jumping on this front, aren't they?

I've also had an excellent two weeks.

Three sales to small press, two more stories on hold, the release of FableCroft's Epilogue - which includes my story, the launch of Snapshot 2012 for which I was interviewed, and now I've just received a personal rejection from Sheila Williams for my last WoTF reject.

And next week is convention time. Roll on Continuum.

Life is good, here in Chateau Cameron.

And, to top it off, I just saw the first review of my story Fireflies from Epilogue.

Review by Katherine Stubbs http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14417744-epiloguehttp://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14417744-epilogue
(reviewer for Hachette Australia and the fantasy writing website/forum Mythic Scribes)


Fireflies - Steve Cameron - Five stars.

Beautiful and emotive. A lovely journey that was set up well, and followed through wonderfully. I would love to see more in this world.


Yay....

Thanks, Ember! -- and indeed, to everyone who took the time to read it. I'm honored.

If it's not too much to ask, I'd love for you to rate the story (on a scale from 1-5 stars), if you get the chance. I imagine that stories that receive a higher number of votes, or a better average rating, are more likely to get picked up for a future best-of anthology. Much appreciated.

Again, I can't thank you enough for reading the story.

Thanks! And it should be out on their website for free next week. I'm sure I'll be obnoxiously informing everyone when it's available. wotf011

By the way, I don't think David has mentioned it here, but David Conyers and David Kernot's "Winds Of Nzambi" is in "The Year's Best Australian Fantasy and Horror".

So, congrats, David!

Awesome guest blog Krystal! I liked hearing about the background of the story and I sneaked onto your blog. I don't think I've ever been on it before, it looks awesome...which I'd expect from an awesome person extraordinaire.
