In the last two months I've received acceptances from both Cricket and, just yesterday, Flash Fiction Online. No idea when either story is coming out, but glad that the stories will be read!

Wishing everybody happiness and success in the new year!


Both GREAT sales, Rebecca! CONGRATULATIONS. Feel good, fill your sails, and use the power to create more!

Best of success to all of you in the coming year!

Fortune favor the brave!

I signed the contract, so I guess I can announce that my novelette "An Empty Cup" will be appearing in the upcoming Spring issue of Deep Magic! wotf007

I wasn't sure I would ever be able to sell this one, but it does have sort of a YA tone, so I guess Deep Magic decided they wanted it! Which is fantastic. I wrote this during the process of trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life last year, and writing it helped me decide to pursue teaching, so there's a layer of personal importance there too. I'm glad it's going to have a home. wotf008
