Did someone say I'm going to be published?

Er, yeah. They did.

(Insert dancing, high-kicking chorus line here with streamers, party poppers - the works!)

In my recent post 'Little Victories' I announced that I'd received an honourable mention for my short story UNDERGROUND in this year's Chapter One Promotions international short story contest. What I didn't realise until I got home on Friday and found a letter sitting on my mat is that this means MY STORY IS GOING TO BE PUBLISHED!!!

The anthology is called PRIMED and will be released in late 2013. Click here to see a list of the contest winners/runners up whose stories will be in the anthology with mine :D

I'm so excited to see something I've written get chosen for publication out of so many entries, and just completely stoked to feel like I'm finally getting somewhere with my writing.

Next on my to-do list, of course, is getting that super awesome agent to take me on! *Eyes super awesome agent.* Yeah, you know I'm talking 'bout you.

In the meantime, another short story contest I'm hoping to enter has a deadline fast approaching, so if I'm a little quiet on twitter and here until the end of the month it's because I'm hard at work on that... Bah, who am I kidding? I'll be just as twitter-happy as ever!

    1. Lol, true! But I searched for 'celebration dance' on Google and a lot of freaky shiz came up, so I thought I'd leave it... ;)
