Could there be a bad day for this? It's a neat story, Dustin. I am a fan of making readers exercise the grey cells.

So it turns out I do have writing news after all. :)

I sold a story to Fireside Magazine today! No idea yet of when it will appear, but I'm really pleased this story found a home so soon, and to such a new-yet-respected market! Apparently playing with Greek mythology worked for them.
