Today, I feel like Natalie

Alexandra Jeffreys has accepted 'The Unfortunate Tale of Captain Unworthy' for the fabulous Books for Monsters. Phew! Now, I can settle back and stop worrying that I won't get an acceptance in June. We do put these weird pressures on ourselves. Doubly strange, as there may be some weird pressure involved in this story. :P)

Off to find a tin of tuna as I toy with the idea of making a 'Flash Story Trailer' as per my last blog post, and kicking myself for not getting a photo of the weird battleship/containership berthed outside our office today.

Nice! Congrats, Cate! These look like some good reads...

Jamie Eyberg said...

that looks like a fun market. I might have some reading to do later on (who am I kidding, I always have reading to do.)

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Jenn.

Katey, Jamie, they're on my list to read tomorrow. I definitely need some monsters in my life.

Barry Napier said...

Congrats! How is it that I never even heard of this market?!

Catherine J Gardner said...

They're listed as a fledgling market on Duotrope.

Big congrats!

Huzzah, Cate! (I put the same weird pressure on myself...and May was not the right month to put on the pressure).

Brendan P. Myers said...

Very cool, Cate. Congrats as always.

Carrie Harris said...

Yay! I wonder if Natalie is saying, "Wow. Today, I feel like Cate."

If you really feel like me, you'll prance around the living room to this instructional video:

Congrats, Cate.

I hope I am one day good enough to place the pressure of at least one acceptance a month on myself.

God, I'm happy if I write one story a month!

I once more bow down to your awesomeness.

Danielle Ferries said...

Woo Hoo! Congrats on the acceptance. I aspire to one acceptance a month.
