Northern Haunts

What a fabulous way to start the day!!!! Lonesome Pine has been accepted by Tim Deal and will appear in the Northern Haunts anthology. Here's the blurb from the Shroud Publishing site:

Northern Haunts is much more than an anthology. It is an indispensable guidebook for your journey through the shadowy New England otherworld. 100 original tales of ghosts, creatures, mad men, and other horrifying mysteries. Each story is told in the first person so that you can employ NORTHERN HAUNTS as a fireside ghost story reference book. It is designed for you to customize these treacherous tales in order to tantalize your friends and terrify your family. Proceeds from the sale of NORTHERN HAUNTS will be donated to the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY. This book is currently open for PRE-ORDERS only. Amazing cover art by Christopher Zibelli!

I am ecstatic that I have made it into this anthology - did a mini tap dance (while sitting down - I'm a writer, I can't do anything too energetic) while reading the email. And it's doubly good news because my story will be appearing alongside tales form JC Tabler, Barry Napier, Natalie L Sin, Nathaniel Lambert, Phil Kuhlman, oh and some guy called Nate Kenyon (you may have heard of him he wrote a wee book called 'Bloodstone' - woot!). Apologies to all those I've missed out...

Congratulations, Catherine! The anthology sounds like it's going to be a good one. I send them a story a couple of weeks ago, but I'm still waiting to hear back.

Thanks Ian - I'm sure your acceptance will be winging its way to you very soon. Keeping my fingers crossed.
