Zombies in Hollywood!

Bards and Sages Quarterly have accepted my story 'Glass Coffins' for the January 2010 issue. It's a zombie tale set in Hollywood*.

*No animals were injured in the making, but some actors started to rot.

In other news, I entered 'Rosalind Red Stands in the Snow' in the Editor Unleashed Flash Fiction 40 competition. Scary stuff. The Grand Prize winner gets $500 - dream on, sister; and the Editor's Choice winners (of which there will be 39) get $25. There are about 240 stories in the competition so I'm not holding my water (especially as I have a kidney infection). :)

Awesome news, congrats-- and the contest sounds like good fun.

Nothing worse than something that makes your organs hurt. Ugh. My sympathies and wishes for a speedy recovery. Yay for antibiotics!

I find the idea of a kidney infection more frightening than zombies. Drink cranberry juice!

Congratulations.

I just sent a story into Bards and Sages, myself actually. Fingers crossed.

Hope the kidney feels better.

Quick fact: Hollywood is the zombie's real-life natural habitat.
