As always, I checked my e-mail the moment I arrived to work this morning. I do this quite a bit (as in about 10-20 times a day) when I have many subs floating around in limbo. And sitting in my In Box this morning was a mail from Shroud.
My short story/flash piece “Bogg’s Island” has been accepted for their Northern Haunts anthology! Notice that in the title of this post I said “first acceptance”…that is because all proceeds from the anthology are going to the American Cancer Society and I plan on donating the money I would receive for the story to their cause. So while it’s technically the first “sale” for me of ’08, someone else will be getting the money.
Peeking around the horror forums, this anthology seems to be generating quite the buzz due to the subject matter and setup. If you’re unfamiliar with it, go HERE, scroll down a ways, and check it out.
