I is gonna be published

So, like, today is a big day. I'm still floating on the clouds that started carrying me on the 26th of October. I received my very first contract!



Still Moments Publishing is compiling short stories for the upcoming holidays and I've been accepted for a Valentines Anthology to debut in February 2012! I'm over joyed by the opportunity and can't say enough things about how sweet they are to work with.

It will be an e-book which means I need to kick my butt in gear and get a Kindle (FIRE) that is released in just a few weeks. I need to be making up for lost time!

Anywho rather than the original post I had scheduled I hijacked it to share my good news. I know you wanted to hear it.

So a big thank you for Still Moments Publishing taking a chance on me, and a big thanks to YOU for always keeping me on my toes, supporting me, and HECK for just listening.

Have any good news to share?
