Extremely pleased to have 'Of The Color Turmeric, Climbing On Fingertips' sold to Night Terrors III anthology, a pro market by Blood Bound Books. The anthology will be published in 2014. This is my first pro sale, and things can only get better from here, now that I have reached that milestone.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all my friends, online and otherwise, who strongly supported and believed in me, including me in their writing communities, and often in publications, representing faith in my writing. They far outweigh those who didn't. This sale is a validation of my friends' faith.
Additionally, a dark, humorous flash fiction piece, 'Hills', has been accepted by AntipodeanSF – which is a bit of a rite of passage in Australia, again a validation. This short piece will be published in issue 185 in November 2013, and shortly thereafter I will read my piece for radio/podcast. Something I look forward to.
All in all I am very pleased. Three significant market acceptances in 1 month, continuing my 1+ acceptance per month rate for the last 3 years.
