Exciting News!

Now that Cleis has given final approval to the TOC, I can at last announce what I've been dying to announce and fretted about sudden disapproval from Cleis for what seems like forever:

My short story, Pleasure Keeper, was accepted by the fabulous, stunning, amazing Rachel Kramer Bussel for inclusion in her anthology: Please, Sir!
And lookee at its beyootiful cover!




It's also already up on amazon.com:

http://www.amazon.com/Please-Sir-Stories-Female-Submission/dp/1573443891/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1256676245&sr=8-1

And is out in the US May 1st, 2010.

I'm in extremely esteemed company so it's a double bonus, and on a personal note this acceptance meant an awful lot to me, because it came at a time when I was certain that a) I'd never get in to anything but a Black Lace antho and b) Black Lace, unbeknowst to me, was about to shut up shop.

So it was both a lovely validation, an honour and a huge relief. My heartfelt thanks to Rachel Kramer Bussel for all of the above.
