I meant to post this last Thursday, but these days my status at any given moment is either busy, exhausted, or asleep. Spring has come and gone, and the hot temperatures it left in its wake leave me sluggish and introspective.
A week ago I received the contract for my first sale of a short story. “The Girl Who Folded Dragons” will appear in Sword & Sorceress 26, due out in November from Norilana Books.
Its been a surreal and emotional week. Having a story in Sword & Sorceress has been a mini-dream of mine for nearly as long as I have been writing. The first writing advice I ever received was from the introductions of each volume. I read them over and over, absorbing and dreaming.
I only wish my dad could have been here to see me achieve this. I promised him that this is my year, and I guess it is.
