So, I've been jumping up and down all day because my Q4 finalist just got accepted to an SFWA qualifying market! Yay, my second sale! No contracts or edits done yet, so I'll hold off on announcing which venue, but--YAHOOOOO!

And now back to your regularly scheduled program.

Thanks all! And nope, not a phone call, Tina! Sorry, that probably gave you a mild heart attack.

And Martin, there is indeed trash to be found. I forgot my brag box was checked on duotrope. Such is life.

I haven't read one of Marina's either (past the 450 mark), so I'm really excited to get to read one of your full stories, Marina. Congrats again!!!
