I'm going to Hollywood!

Waking up to good news is the only way I want to wake up from now on...

11-day SALE to Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy edited by Karen A. Romanko (aka ravenelectrick) for my short story "Obmutescence," which is about silent movies, shadow familiars, and a man on a mission. I'll share with you the first line, if only cause I really like it:

So there I was, greater Los Angeles.

That's all you get, people. You must now sit on your hands until the anthology comes out. Yes, I exist to make you all suffer. Carry on.

Either way, consider me a pleased hobbit today. This was the first story I wrote when I sort of came back and got serious and actually worked away at the thing for a few days so I'm glad it's found a home. Plus, you know, there's a camphor tree in it. Such beautiful trees...

Cinema Spec is still open for submissions, by the way. Read the guidelines here and give it a shot. You know you want to be TOC-mates with me.

Now, back to editing...

I read the brief description of your story on that guy's blog. Would you mind telling me the speculative bent? You can send it to me privately if you want.

Also, where do you get info about upcoming anthologies? I'm worried that by the time I finish a story for this one it may be filled. Or did you just happen to have a hollywood related story lying around?

Sure, but first, ravenelectrick is no guy. She's a woman. The spec bent comes in the form of the protagonist's assistant, a shadow familiar, as well as powers in his hands (to say anymore would ruin the story).

As for info on anthologies, Ralan.com is the best place to look:

Thanks, sis! It's a silly-word title, which I hope makes it eye-catching.
