. . . can be found here (link leads to the DSF page).

I have been remiss!  But also on vacation, and then writing (short stories, yes I know it's not May anymore), and now back at work which means buried under a pile of e-mail.  I got halfway through last week's e-mail today!  Working backward.  And also skipping anything that couldn't be immediately dealt with.  Still progress, I suppose.

It seems to be FINALLY summer here, which makes me happy, even if the nearest pool is still in that phase where it's overrun by kids and teenagers b/c it's the beginning of the summer and they haven't swum for nine months.  I suspect the glamor will wear off in a few weeks, but for now I have to REALLY want it to brave the jumping and splashing and that weird feeling of being a single person going to a small pool when everyone else there is with family or friends.  Awkward much?  Yes.  Keeping me from swimming on weekends?  So far.  I just have to get home from work before the temperature gets too low.  One of these days . . .

And that's about it.  Vacation was awesome and relaxing.  WisCon was The Best, again.  I will be returning next year, barring financial ruin.

Ooh, also, I read some really good YA books!  I will list them here, in case I am too lazy/overworked to come back and review them properly: Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Team Human by Justine Larabalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan, The Five Flavors of Dumb by Anthony John, and a re-read-but-still-awesome, Highway to Hell, By Rosemary Clement-Moore.

My story THE GIRL SHE TRULY WAS went out into the ether last Wednesday, May 30th, via Daily Science Fiction's e-mail.  It will be available for free online on the Daily Science Fiction website this coming Wednesday, June 6th.

I really need to do a WisCon report, because LOVED IT AGAIN!!

I'm actually on vacation right now, though, so I'll see y'all in a week.  Wish me sleep and warm weather!

"The Girl She Truly Was" will be distributed via e-mail by Daily Science Fiction on May 30th, and will be available for free on the DSF website one week later, on June 6th!

I am very very excited, y'all!  Second story, about to be published.  Plus, it'll get put up just after WisCon (just before would be better, but this'll do!). 

Also I am poking about on the writer's friending meme on Three Weeks for Dreamwidth, which is interesting.

My story "The Girl She Truly Was" will be appearing in Daily Science Fiction, an online speculative fiction magazine!

I don't yet know when it'll be appearing.  DSF sends out weekdaily e-mails to their subscribers, and then a week later the story posts for all to see, for free, on their website.  I will let you know as soon as I do!

SERIOUSLY, SO EXCITED.  I am no longer a flash-in-the-pan!  I've done it TWICE!

(Also, I think I finally have the query letter for Skywatch nailed.  On to the synopsis.)

This afternoon was the AFTERNOON OF E-MAIL.

Had a meeting this morning, had an awesome lunch with my co-workers, got back to my desk at 1.  Spent the next two and a half hours exchanging frantic e-mail, replying to e-mail, cancelling and then un-cancelling a meeting (via e-mail), setting up another meeting (also via e-mail), and did I mention writing e-mail?

Also! )

I AM PUBLISHED IN A BOOK PEOPLE CAN GO TO THE STORE AND BUY, and this is still a total high for me.  Week of win!

Amazon has it listed here:

Also available at Barnes and Noble online:

I'm not sure where else you can get it, but I'm sure you can bully your local book store into ordering you a copy.

Y'ALL, I AM IN PRINT!  That's my name on the table of contents!  EEEE!!

News is: a few months ago, everyone with a story in Sword and Sorceress XXV was invited to do an e-mail interview with Jonathan Moeller, who writes an interesting spec-fic/pulp blog and has published several novels.  Apparently he does this every year, and then posts the interviews every Thursday as the book's publication date approaches.

Well, the publication date is fast approaching, and my interview has been published!

Check out the neat things I have to say, and catch a sneak-peek of my story, here:

Feel free to poke around the rest of his site, too.

Whew--recovering from the wonderfulness of WisCon took longer than I thought!  Then again, WisCon exceeded my expectations in every way, so I don't know why I thought that would be different.

At any rate, I have not one but TWO exciting pieces of news.


Bonus: Book recommendation--Feed, by Mira Grant.  Adult spec-fic.  Blogging.  Zombies.  Conspiracies.  Snark.  Not for the squeamish or easily intimidated.  Fantastic read.

anthimeria: Astro City superheroine Flying Fox (Flying Fox)
I got my very first acceptance letter today!!  I don't know what to do with myself.

Well, except send the signed contract back and tell everyone I know that I'M GOING TO BE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR!

Deal is this: it's one of my short stories, called "Well Enough," and it's being published in a yearly fantasy anthology called Sword and Sorceress 25.

I've always been a little bit in love with Sword and Sorceress )

Now I'm going to be in this anthology, and maybe write a bio that some other girl, hungry for awesome women in spec-fic, will read and think, "Hey.  If she can do it, so can I!"

That's what I thought.  And now I have.

Thanks, MZB.

(Y'all, if I get this excited for my first short story sale, I don't know what I'm gonna do when my first novel gets published.)

(Also, expect to hear me squeaking some more in November, when the book actually comes out!)
