After the Bloody Words conference was over I decided to follow up on a submission I made way back in February. Was getting regular updates until March, then nothing.
Well, I got an email today saying it was accepted. Don't know the publication date yet, but it's being published. Keep me away from sharp objects as I may pop!
The only payment is publication, but who cares. It's my first fiction publication, and it's not a newsletter for a society. Yippee - Happy Dance.
