Nothing for ages and then three acceptances come along at once! Yesterday, I received confirmation I've got a short in THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOK OF EROTICA. Today I got confirmation I've got a story in CAUGHT LOOKING. Then the post arrived with the contract, cover flats and proofs for my story in SEX AND SHOPPING.
These are the truly great moments for a writer, when all is rewarded, the daily ups and downs, the years of rejections and learning. It's a totally wonderful feeling. For the unpublished authors out there -- keep at it, it's worth the hard work!! I do wish these golden moments would come more spread out though. :-) Now, if only I could calm down, I could get on with the work in progress. I have to keep telling myself "party tonight, not now" LOL
