I’m published!

Quite excited about this. I’m (almost) published! Ages ago I submitted a short story in response to this call for submissions – totally on spec, not expecting to hear anything back other than a polite thanks-but-no-thanks. Long story short, I did hear back with an eager yes-please, but haven’t been able to tell anyone about it until now because the final list wasn’t confirmed. The editors of the anthology ran into a few real-life-type problems which put the antho on hold, but it’s still in the pipeline, and today they posted the (almost) final list of acceptances.

I’m there as Louise James, and my story Sleeping Beauty is a rather pleasingly gory retelling of that well-known fairy tale. Last I heard, publication was expected in early 2012 – I’ll keep you posted!

UPDATE: May 3, 2012

As far as I know the publication of Wandering Weeds is still on schedule. I’ve signed contracts, submitted a bio and photo, seen, edited and returned the galley, and the editors assure me that all is still on track with Hall Brothers, who are publishing the book. No word on a release date yet, but I hope it won’t be too long.

    Thank you! Still not published, but I’m waiting on word from the editors – I think it’ll be soon. Watch this space…
