As I mentioned in the previous post, we selected a call for submissions prompt and wrote a story in under 18,000 words for it. The deadline was March 1, and we submitted it on February 11. We got our response today…
I don’t want to go into too much detail because we haven’t signed the contract yet, but they want to publish our story in an up-coming anthology! There isn’t enough squee in the world!
I’m just… I don’t even know how to describe it. In a few months, there will be a story that we wrote in (digital) print, and we’ll get paid for having written it, and people will (we hope!) buy and read it, and we’ll officially be published writers. It’s the culmination of a lifelong dream, and I can scarcely believe it’s coming true at last.
Once the deal is locked in, I’ll share info about when the story will be released and how to get it for anyone who’s interested. For now, however, we’re just going to do a happy dance of joy and probably eat cake to celebrate. Because this is an occasion that definitely calls for cake!
