Got another Gig

I Googled, “calls for submission” a while back, and found this little gem. I do like a good fantasy, and I was in the mood for dragons. So . . . I submitted to Roane Publishing Special Call–Portals.

bookcover portalsThey gave me a picture to tempt me, to tease a story out of me.

I couldn’t resist.

The best news is I’ve gotten another piece accepted to be published. Now last time I was very shy about it. Freakingly so. But this time I’m letting myself go, and not holding back at all.

Every time I try to share I start jumping in my chair. 🙂

I asked myself what if all the magic from fairy tales came from one place, from dragons and the only way to get the magic back was through a portal. What would a king do for his kingdom? Who would he send to an unknown land? In my story he sends Mexmur, the huntress. The story just poured out of me so fast I kept stopping myself and rereading bits and pieces. In the end I couldn’t help but feel pleased.

With the idea captured, I needed feedback. Lucky for me a good friend was there to help with a quick beta read. We all know Erika from Cloud Nine Girl. Thanks, Erika. You’re the best. 🙂

After Erika’s okay, off it went. I can tell you while I waited my  heart stopped beating. I know! I thought I was going to die, so freaked–oh, I’ve said that.

Anyway Roane Publishing is taking a chance on me.

I’ll keep you posted as things unfold. Excuse me, but I have to happy dance in private–no art butterfly flowerspoint in embarrassing myself further with another crazy public display.

One more thing. Roane is still looking to fill a spot or two. If you like to write fantasy and can imagine a story through a portal, please submit here. I’d love to have you there with me. That way we can both jump around like fools.

Can I have a whoot–whoot. 🙂

Thank you . . . thank you very much *me using an Elvis voice.*
