I’m sat at my desk, negotiating a bit of a tit-for-tat training package for one of my areas, when my phone dings. After the call has ended I look at the message and I see that I’ve been invited to submit to an invite-only anthology covering two of my favourite subjects. Both of which shall remain secret for now.
Having had a 100% success rate so far for my short stories, I’m feeling pretty damn chuffed about this and when my beautiful and very supportive wife returns from the school walk, I show it to her. It turns out that she was talking to one of our friends and her friend – who is also an author, but with novels rather than shorts – and they congratulated her on how well I seemed to be doing.
They also mentioned that they had been doing a bit of a search on the books I was doing and my Grimm & Grimmer Volume 2 entry, Death’s Messengers, was mentioned. Needless to say, I hunting all over for this review and found it on Amazon.
