I can now officially say "THFPPLLL" to those who maintain that self-published authors are losers who can't get accepted by publishers. Circlet Press has accepted my story "Fears Moon Woman" for their upcoming shapeshifter erotica anthology "Like a Moonrise." Smile

The story features Rabbit Runnels, the hapless, gentle deputy from Scryer's Gulch, but stands alone. The Gulch will remain PG-13, but it was fun to get poor ol' Rabbit laid.

I haven't seen the contract yet, so I don't know when exactly I can put it up here. When I do it'll be in the Patron section.

I also entered the New Scientist flash fiction contest to be judged by Mr Gaiman. Never would've done that ever.

the story I sent in (which will appear here after the contest is over) came SO fast and I'm happy enough with it that I worry worry worry that I read it somewhere--that I'm remembering something as my own that isn't my own.

are just slow learners. You have to tell them, and tell them, and tell them.... Smile

I have a friend who is like that with her artistic abilities. That girl can draw anything, paint with any medium, create anything she can envision. She can't NOT draw or doodle. In our biology class she colored her shoes with my pens not 10 minutes into class!

This same woman, who all of us are in complete awe of, who has heard time and again from all of us and some of her artist friends, just how good she is...refuses to believe us. She somehow thinks that we are just trying to buffer her feelings. She's had local commercial contracts to do several paintings - but we're just building her up, right? She insists on comparing her art to other people's and saying she's not that good. And she's right - she's better. Different styles, different subject matters, but she's better than any art gallery piece I've seen. I'd hang her stuff up before I'd hang up any piece I've seen in any office in the city. I think, however, that she is finally - FINALLY - getting some confidence in her skills. She actually put on her facebook the other day that she was willing to do commissions of any size!

All of this to say: Mei, we know you're good. We know you can do this. It's about time you believed it too. Congratulations!!! WAHOO!
