But yesterday, I received an e-mail that actually took my breath away.
Leap Books has revealed the cover for the Spirited anthology - and look! My name is on it!
Of course I knew my short story, THREAD OF THE PAST, had been accepted into the anthology, but until I saw the proof first-hand, it didn't quite feel real.
But there it is - my name, on the cover of a pretty awesome looking book, along with the names of some of the genre's best (and bestselling) authors.
What an absolute honor.
The Sprited e-book launches October 31 (Happy Halloween), and the print version will be published in March, 2012.
