Thanks, everyone! Finally becoming real. I just read through the galleys, and it felt great seeing my name on the page.

Agreed. The original concept was "What would you do if you could get an extra hour in the day?" Sounds like the anthology ended up with twenty very different takes on the idea.

My story is fantasy. Some people on AW will be familiar with my story universe from my past SYW offerings. "Perfection" features the characters Gideon and Noftic. Mine's a cautionary tale... :D

YAY CONGRATULATIONS! One of my aunts reads short stories, and only short stories... I think a good short story can be harder to write than a good novel! Well done :)

My author copy arrived today. It's a real book!

I spent most of this evening reading the rest of the anthology. "Perfection" is in good company.

Official release date is next Tuesday, August 27.

That is so awesome! And the concept sounds so neat! I love quirky theme anthologies, I love them so muuuuuuch. I love seeing how different writers take on the same concept.

Congratulations on the wonderful feeling of words in print! >_> And omg, congratulations on the money! God knows selling a story can be the windfall you needed (stupid cheap day jobs)
