Short Story to be Published, and draft of second book finished

Well, the title explains it all, really. I've had a short story accepted into an anthology to be published next May, called Modern Grimmoire, It's retellings of fairy tales, which is pretty exciting. Will be the first time my stuff has actually appeared in printed books!

Also, tonight I finished the first draft of my second book. First book is out on submission to publishers right now, but I'm still excited about getting this project polished in time and sending it off to my agent.

End of message. Yay.

Thanks to all! Sheila, not a sequel, just another book I'm hoping agent will like and rep.
