The duel gets kind of messy.

I just sold a short story, "The Witch's Second," to Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

This story came about because I was in the middle of writing "The Witch's Second Daughter," and due to line breaks or something I just saw the first three words, and I thought, well, that's another title.

I don't think I'll be trying to write either "The Witch's" or "The Witch's Second Daughter Simpers" or the like, but one never knows. (I chose "simpers" there because it was the verb that seemed least likely to tempt me; my brain has already supplied "recants" as an alternate verb of more interest. Hush, brain.)

ETA: Uh, that appears to make my 80th short story sale.

I totally get sushi.
