I forgot to mention that my short story, titled “Last Thorday Night” in its final draft, sold to Trisha Telep, editor of The Mammonth Book of Time Travel Romance.
Last Thorsday Night is the only story I’ve ever written about a writer.
I also forgot to mention that I got the cover art, which is pretty cool.
I got the invite to write this story after doing a story for Trisha’s The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance. I accepted that invite because I was writing How To Think Sideways at the time, and I needed to have a real project to work on that A) demonstrated the techniques I was teaching, and B) could really be rejected if I screwed up. The story sold. And I found these two mini-reviews on Amazon.com tonight.
***Light Through Fog – Holly Lisle – Tragedy separates soul mates, but love transcends boundaries in a magical place – (5+ stars – Wonderful and poignant, a complete and moving story, I am amazed how much Lisle fit into her contribution.)
[LIGHT THROUGH FOG] by Holly Lisle, When Sarah’s husband Sam died all that was left to connect them was their tree and a mysterious magic in the fog. — By far the stand-out story of the bunch, vividly imagined, extremely romantic and touching, doesn’t quite make up for the less-than-stellar rest of the collection but a must-read! 5/5 stars
