I recently sold another short story- this one is called Music Hall, Music Hell. It’s for an anthology called Happy Hell-o-Ween; Underworld Tours. I wrote it in a couple of hours (after getting up three times in the night to jot down notes) and then let it simmer in my head for the day. I edited it that evening and submitted it. In 18 minutes, I had an acceptance. The editor called it “a gem”- made my day.
It’ll be out in September, 2011, I believe as it is a Halloween Anthology. Check out the other books at the publisher’s website. I’ve got stories in several of them. I’m in Dear Valentine; Christmas in Outer Space; Free Range Fairy Tales; Halloween Dances with the Dead; and It Was a Dark and Stormy Halloween. There are some amazing writers there. http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/WhortleberryPress
