Yesterday, January 15, 2006, will forever be a a day I hold deep in my heart.
I sold my first story ever, "The Dealer's Hands", to Shimmer for their Spring issue.
I could barely sleep last night. I'm so excited. This story went through three different versions and a thousand of edits. All the work paid off though.
I've only been submitting stories since June 2005. I know of other people who have gone a lot longer without selling a story. I was never expecting anything like this so soon.
I can say it now.
I'm a published writer.
