It’s Always a Good Day to be Published

Whatever else might happen, it’s an awesome day when a contract shows up in your inbox because someone wants to publish one of your stories.

I’m not a big needer of public recognition (although it’s nice sometimes) and individual rejections don’t bother me all that much (although a big pile of them in a short period of time can be a little frustrating), but when a story comes back as one that someone actually likes enough to pay you for, that’s pretty cool.

“Mission Log, Day 67” will be appearing in the Kazka Press e-anthology At Year’s End: SFF Holiday Stories. My story is a short SF piece that I will not spoil here, but that I think works pretty well (and an editor agrees with me), and will appear in the collection with 20 other speculative fiction holiday pieces, all coming in at 500 words or less. At Year’s End will be released on December 9th, just in time for all of those year-end celebrations.

Now, I just have to convince a balky printer that it’s okay to let me have a hard copy of the contract.
