To put this in context, I love both Conan and Call of Cthulhu

I sold a story to Weird Tales.

If you need me for the rest of the day, I’ll be over in the corner geeking out*.

*For bonus points, I discovered that I like the first half of the novella enough that I’m not actually embaressed to let people read it. It’s still flawed, yes, but not *OMGWTF am I doing, this ferking sucks” flawed. As usual, the problem seems to have been cramming in way to much backstory in one go.**

**Hell, this day keeps getting better. The Australian Government decided to ignore the shitty recomendation from the productivity commission that we remove Australian territorial copyright. I so thought Australian writers and publishers weren’t going to win that fight, for all that there were dozens of sensible reasons on our side and a handful of really daft ones on the pro-parrallel importation end.

    That rocks, dude! Congratulations. Are you going to tell us the title/subject of the story or are you just going to be a tease? 😉

    The current title is "The Last Thing Said Before Silence." When you guys read it a while back, it had a different name, but largely it comes down to the one with the mimes.

    Awesome! So proud of you! You are living the dream, man. Takes a bit of the sting out of the rejection I got from Ann this morning… 🙂

    Oh yeah, and if you don't announce this to the Clarion guys and girls, I'm going to do it for you… Shout it from the rooftops, even…

    Oh yeah, you got a review, too…

    Thanks dude.

    I fear my announcements are going to be monoplatform for the next three days – deadline and internet are a dangerous combination, and there's still 23 scenes in need of line-editing before I can hand the Cold Cases manuscript over on Sunday evening.
