I am sooo EXCITED. My short story “Christmas In Hawaii” will appear in “Christmas Delights.” Published by Love Lane Books Limited. I could not believe it when I saw my name on the list of authors, I just stared at it. When I saw what RJ Scott was doing and offering to do for new writers I was thrilled. It’s not easy getting your name out there and having your name connect to a popular established author is huge. At first I thought there wasn’t enough time. I had to think of a concept, develop the characters, and plot. So I turned it over in my mind and thought why the fuck not. All I could do is try. The worse that could happen is that she would say no, and if that were the case I would just curl up in a ball in my bed, hide under my covers and quite possibly suck my thumb. (Thank the Goddess she said yes). My story is now with an editor. I have been biting my nails since I sent it. Nothing like having your torso cut open, having your insides taken out, put on display, and poked at. OK that may be just a bit of an exaggeration and possibly a bit dramatic. But the waiting is killing me. I will keep you updated and let you know if my sanity holds out.
