Holy crap. I totally expected Shawna to pass on it, but, eek. This story is significant for a couple of reasons:
- It's the first fairy tale I've ever sold, and one of the purest pieces of fantasy I've ever written.
- It's my third professional short story sale, which means I'm very close to (finally) qualifying for Active SFWA membership, and equally close to the end of my Writers of the Future eligibility period.
Needless to say, I have much to think about now, and a .doc file to send off!
