A note from Death

Corpulent Insanity Press have accepted my short story 'Dead Parachutes' for their Bloody October anthology.

I quote: "Undead Dolly Partons, psychotic gnomes, and cranky women in purple robes should be a part of every halloween anthology."

I agree - of course.

The anthology is edited by Christopher Allan Death and I can't wait to see who else is in the TOC. Oh, and it is to be published in October - but you probably already guessed that.

Woo-Hoo!

Well done that woman!

It looks fan that book and I'm sure that editor's name is familiar too - methinks he submitted to an anthology I was once involved with.

Congrats!

Cheers, Mark. :)

Congrats! Toldya!

Now...where's your brass band? I always did like a brass band!

Catherine J Gardner said...

It's playing at the moment but it's a wee bit out of tune...

Oh, congratulations!! I'm so glad the Dolly Parton story made it into a cool antho--I can't wait to read it!

Well done, Catherine.

Thanks for stoppin' by my blog - always good to have a fresh face.

Nice! The story I sent to Harvest Hill ALMOST went here instead. It was a tough choice but I'm hoping for the best...
and i agree about the brass band...

Catherine J Gardner said...

KC - Cheers.

Brian - thanks for returning the visit.

Barry - How weird! I actually started this story with the intention of sending it to Harvest Hill and then it seemed to go so off-the-wall I thought I'd try Bloody Oct. instead as I didn't think it suitable for H.H. Sometimes we make good decisions.

Congrats, Cate! :)

And I love the cover art, the contrast of colourful and creepy.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Cheers, Mary. Clowns are always guaranteed to be creepy.

Wonderful news. You'll have to share with me where you find all of your publications to submit to. I have Ralan's and Duotrope's but sometimes they seem a bit bare.

Again, congrats.

Hi Gabriel

I mainly use Ralan and Duotrope, though I also find info on other blogs and also on forums like Graveside Tales and Permuted Press.
