Y'know, I've trained myself pretty well. When I see a SASE in my mailbox, my first thought is, oh, well, another rejection letter. Yes, my second thought is, wait, maybe they actually want the story!, but the third and fourth and fifth and so on continue along the line of the first, with the second popping in very occasionally only to be smooshed down again. Seriously, I opened this envelope dreading what I'd see inside. Even as I started reading the line "I like your story..." my mind was filling in the "...but unfortunately, I don't feel it's quite what I'm looking for."

I guess that makes sense, considering that for my two or three acceptances in the last two years, I've had at least 20 times as many rejections. I am officially jaded.

I am also officially being published in Dark Cloud Press's Thou Shalt Not anthology.

Finally, "Frozen" found a home! And I've made my second pro sale! (not sure whether this will be SFWA-acceptable, but what the hey) Yay, yay, and more yay!

This totally makes up for my morning, during with the kid I was working with spend more time screaming and tantruming than anything else. But hey. Who cares. My stories are being perfect angels. ;)

Shout out to ktempest--we're going to be anthology-buddies! And to larah33, who pointed me to the anthology in the first place.
