I sold my novelette, "This Tragic Glass," to Ellen Datlow at Scifi.com today.
This feels like a bigger deal than the novels, somehow. Possibly because I never actually planned on selling a novel, but many, many years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the internet, I said to myself, "I will know I am a real writer when I can sell a story to Ellen Datlow."
And today I did.
It's supposed to see print in the spring.

View but his picture in this tragic glass,
And then applaud his fortunes as you please
