I wanted to wait until I was sure it was ´public´, but now I´d better give you my little bit of good news: in November I participated in a flash fiction challenge, Walmart, I Love You, hosted by Patti, Pattinase. We were roughly forty people who had a lot of fun writing the pieces and visiting each other afterwards.
And now Stacia Decker (literary agent) has sold our joint efforts to Untreed Reads Publishing. Our fabulous (very different at least) anthology, Discount Noir, will be out as ebook around October 1st.

Am I overwhelmed? You bet. And in such amazing company! Yay.
Thank you to Patti, Steve and Stacie - and everybody else who participated.
