Things We Sell to Editors for Good Reasons [Mar. 4th, 2013|01:24 pm]

Just sold a story to Analog: "Things We Have in the House for No Reason." Hurrah Analog.

This one is very short. I read it at Minicon last year, and people laughed and went, "Ohhhh." So I am pleased that it gets a wider audience.

(This is short story sale #97. For 91 we got Blizzards. I don't think that markgritter is required to get me another engagement ring for 97, particularly as I don't want one--I'm happy with what I've got. But having the run of numbers I associate with years has been amusing.)

Congratulations! I'm quite fond of that one, and glad it found a good home.

Wheeeee, hooray! That's also one of my favorites. So sneaky and creepy and yet so familial.

Congratulations! I'm assuming #100 will produce a celebration of some kind?

You should also look forward to my 37th birthday. (I'm 34 now.) When I was a teenager, my mother kept grounding me until I was 37 every time I got mouthy with her. I can't wait to see what life is like once I'm no longer grounded! It's going to be amazing!

Are you going to serve dishes starring ground meat, ground spices, groundnuts, etc.? [/Southern hostess overdrive]

More importantly: sale! Yay!

I don't think I've heard that one, and I like the title--I'll have to look for it when it comes out. Congratulations!
