The Universe Adores ME (today)

I am pleased to announce that Jodi Lee has accepted my short story Weird Beautiful Muse for the first print issue of New Bedlam. Jodi invited me to write for the magazine a few months ago and I'm delighted that the story was accepted.

Not only did I find an acceptance in my email this morning, but also two letters from folk who'd read two of my short stories. One for The Forest of Discarded Hearts which was reprinted yesterday, and the other for my story Flying Dutchman which appeared in 'Space & Time.' I was almost speechless. I say almost because I did manage to twitter the fact, but seriously, the mouth flapped open. Totally overawed. A major thank you to them, and also a thank you to everyone who read or mentioned Forest yesterday. Much appreciated.I pretty much ♥ everyone in the world today. Well, almost everyone.

I was so giddy that I almost left the house wearing my slippers.
