Congrats, HL, pretty darn awesome. And congrats to you, Holly. Wow, from straight WOTF reject to a pro-market sale. That's fantastic, and so inspiring! Yay!

My first drabble is up today at Specklit: http://specklit.com/blog/2015/07/28/tit-for-tat/

A sale is a sale, right, even if it's only 100 words? :)

I'm not sure this next one counts as success in the sense of the thread, but it made me feel successful! A review of the Insert Title Here anthology lists my story as one of her favourites: http://stephaniegunn.com/aww2015-insert ... i-wessley/

Coming soon to a bookshop near you, and / or available to order on line from Flame Tree athttp://flametreepublishing.com/ is this beautiful trio of hardbacks, respectively ghost, horror and science fiction stories mingling new writing with old masters.

And when they release the final author list (http://blog.flametreepublishing.com/fantasy-gothic/bid/78341/Gothic-Fantasy-Successful-Submissions) what do we find? In addition to yours truly a certain Stewart C Baker has snuck in quietly. How did I not know this? Did I turn over two pages of this thread or something?
