Remember when I started Loathsome, Dark, and Deep and said I was writing with the small press in mind? I do.
Well, the wonderful Jodi Lee at Belfire Press has given the thumbs up to the book for publication late this year (tentatively November 2010).
Me: stoked. I love Loathsome, Dark, and Deep. It was a helluva good time to write, and I'm thrilled the world (at least those who so choose) will be able to read it.
But wait, I said give 'em both barrels, right?
Okay...the magnificent Cynthia Reeser with Aqueous Books also made an offer to publish a collection of my less-horrific work. The Saints are Dead, a collection of eighteen previously published and new stories will be out in 2011. (Lookie, my name is already under the In Support of Our Authors section on the left-hand side of their site.)
Me: double stoked, which is awfully close to having a heart attack, for the record. So yeah. I have some promotion to do.
And some panicking.
