The release of the short story “Rivals” gets closer every day and it’s been exciting watching the publication process at work. Unlike Nerdvana, for which I submitted the story, found out I was in, signed the contract and sat back and waited for the book to publish, the process for “Rivals” has found me much more involved (which I like a lot).

Earlier this week the draft of the story’s blurb arrived in my inbox. It’s only two sentences, but it made me positively giddy. I also got notified that the manuscript moved into the editing phase and got the basic timeline that process will follow.

This morning another cool thing happened: I noticed I was part of the Dreamspinner Press authors page, complete with my own bio. Giddy once again!
