Monday was a big day for me. I got three awesome notifications in my inbox:
–The Red Penny Papers wants to publish my story “Midnight Laundry” in their Summer edition!
-Another publisher wants to buy a second story of mine (I don’t want to jinx it so no details until the contract is signed).
-I received payment for the story that started all this, Shadows of the Darkest Jade (appearing in Historical Lovecraft), officially making me a professional fiction writer!
I’m definitely riding high on success lately, and I’m trying to preserve this feeling so I can better endure the rejection that will inevitably come later. That might sound defeatist, but my philosophy is hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Every bubble has to burst…(heh, I rhymed)
In other excellent news, Goodreads is giving away two copies of Historical Lovecraft!
