Alright, I’ve been hella down in the dumps lately, like, nauseatingly so.
So, imagine how awesome it was to get an e-mail from Finishing Line Press today telling me that they’ll publish my chapbook La Petite Mort!!!! This is completely out-of-the blue too, because I had entered it in their New Women’s Voices contest, got the standard “Thanks, we’re going to publish this amazing writer, and you’re not her” note, and didn’t give it another thought. I guess they also choose to publish a select number of non-winners.
But I am dizzily happy, crazy amazed, and thrilled! Tomorrow I will worry about withdrawing it from the other contests I have it in. But tonight I’m going to bask in the knowledge that I finally have a real, live book to my name.
