My Very First Requested Story!

 About a month ago, Paul Anderson sent me a request for a story to include in his Torn Realities Anthology.  I was super excited, partly because I was really hoping that someone would request a story from me this year, and partly because Paul is a really cool guy and the anthology looks like it will be great.  

I wrote him a science fiction horror story about lesbian clones and deep space travel with some Lovecraftian themes woven in.  I sent it to him this morning, and he got back to me to let me know he wants it.  *happy dance*  Having a story requested is no guarantee that it’ll be accepted, so I’m really glad that my first request ever worked out.  

The book should hopefully be out in March!
