Hey guys!

Just a reminder to not give up on finding a home for those HMs. After several rejections, I just sold my first HM to an anthology.

You just never know.  Smile

Congratulations! I look forward to reading it when it comes out!

Awesome! Smile I always think that HM stories and better have at worst good seeds, and potential to find themselves a home somewhere. I'm really glad to see yours finding itself one!

@scribblesatdusk Just read it, and can relate to it too. Really thought provoking. It reminded me of a scene in Being Human (UK version), where Annie the ghost is performing with a medium and her own mother comes into the theatre. She says something along the lines of "Losing a child is a unique pain, but if anyone could take away that pain I wouldn't want them to, because that pain is all I have left of her."

It's very close to the mark.

I haven't seen Being Human but this is very much it, though my MC makes a diff decision from Annie's mom. I've been wondering what kind of pain people are willing to put up with and why.

Sold a story to Kaleidotrope! It's a little story I wrote while playing around with prompts from the Super Secrets thread, actually, intended as a kind of throw-away fun exercise, but I liked how it turned out, and it had received some positive feedback from other markets before finding its home.

(I'm really happy to make a sale to Kaleidotrope, too, as they're a market that, for whatever reason, was on my want to crack list of markets.)  

It likely won't see the actual light of day until 2024 though, so it'll be a while before I can share a link to it. Still, though -- woot!
