Yarrrrr!

Shimmer magazine -- in this case represented by johnjosephadams -- has just bought a short story of mine, "Pirates by Adeline Thromb Age 8."

It would go without saying that this is for their themed Pirate issue for Talk Like a Pirate Day, except that many of you don't keep track of markets and so probably didn't know they had one. So: it is. Yep. Yarrrr. (Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19 of every yearrrrr. Ahem. I mean of every year. The story is not written in pirate talk, I promise.)

This is the story I wrote in my sleep. I mean that rather literally: I went to sleep on the plane coming home from World Fantasy, having talked to johnjosephadams and admired his temporary pirate tattoo and so on, and when I woke up this story existed, whole, in my head. So I wrote it down and sent it off, and now he's buying it. Neat.
