Wow. Very powerful. Even though you'd told me about the story, I still sat stunned after it was over. Well done. Really. Well done.

I have a big success today: my first pro publication. My flash piece "30 Pounds of Human Tissue" is today's offering from DSF. I mention in my author notes a friend who made a challenge to write and submit a flash every month (targeting DSF in particular). That friend is Dustin. So thanks, Dustin!

Congrats, Jennifer. I actually noticed that title in my inbox today and thought to myself, "I like the title!" I didn't know it was yours though of course so didn't open it. I certainly will now! (Though not right now, very tired, it's well after midnight and I'm officially part pumpkin.)

Well, it may not be pro, but it's still pretty good. My story, "Zion" has been selected to be part of the Anthology For All Eternity: The Seven Deadly Sins to represent Gluttony.

I'll have more details and a full ToC as they come available. It's a semi-pro rate, but a sale is a sale. Especially with the letter that came with it. wotf007
