Phew!



The folks at Sand: A Journal of Strange Tales have accepted my story 'Sneakers on Asphalt' for issue 4 due out in May 2009. I can now cease having panic attacks that I'll never get another acceptance - well for a week at least.

*Picture to the left is of their 2008 anthology, which includes my story 'Through the Warped Eye of Death'.

Oh, what a horrid week and a half into the new year it must have been (I tease)! Congratulations Cate! Your rate of acceptances continues to boggle me.

Congrats, Cate! I'm looking forward to that anthology at the end of this year, because, let's face it, I have a tendency not to buy subscriptions to magazines.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Mary.

If the anthology is anything like last years, you'll love it. Good to know I'll be sharing the TOC of it with you and Barry.

Barry Napier said...

Hooray! I'll see you there in may with my story "End Credits"!

Erik Smetana said...

That is wonderful news! Congrats Cate!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks Barry & Erik.

Congratulations! Acceptances are the best, aren't they. They are like a drug though, you have to keep getting your regular fix or the DTs start kicking in. :)

Thanks, Inkpot. :)
