Sale To Tor.com!

I sold my story, Beauty Belongs to the Flowers, to Tor.com! If you know Tor.com, you know this is mighty awesome. If you don't know Tor.com, let me just tell you that this is mighty awesome. This is my second pro sale and it's great exposure for a story that I love (number 57 of 1,000). I'll let you know when it's out and provide a link. If you guys remind me, I'll give you the story behind the story here on the blog when it comes out.

I'm a happy goose.

I know I've put Gene on here a couple of times before, but this deserves a Gene style celebration!

Congratulations! I'm sure you're dancing a jig in real life too!

Thank you, I am!

Spectacular job! I can't wait to review it. One more and you can apply to SFWA (which some people think is important).

Thanks, Adam! Actually I'm rather ambivalent about joining SFWA. It seems like it would be good on some level, but I'm not a joiner. My current plan is not to join , but who knows what the future holds?

Give me a shout when you review it, even if you eviscerate it.

Mighty awesome, for sure. Do consider sharing the story-of-the-story with us, too. You know I'm a sucker for that. Sometimes, though, with some of your work, I'm not sure where it came from is any of our business. (There I go again!)
