Well, I did it! I can’t believe I did it, but I did it. I took FIRST PRIZE in the writing contest at Crypticon Seattle this weekend – my short story ‘Experimental Procedure’ is published in the 2012 Anthology and I’ve been given a publishing offer from Blysster Press – I think after two days it’s finally starting to sink in.

Oh, and I did my first writing panel with my new team – the Blysster Press crew… so surreal.

I have a lot of work ahead of me. I can’t wait.
