Celebrate Beauty

Oh My!!!

A month or so ago drummerwench  and I submitted stories to untold press for their Dragonthology anthology.  They already had six stories slotted and were looking for four additional stories to finish out the book.  I quickly worked up a story in a fairy-tale mode set in a Meso-American landscape and submitted it, thinking that I could start collecting my rejection letters.  But this is what I got from them in my Email today.  Squeeee!!!!  OK, I'm really, really happy.  

<i>Thank you so much for your submission to our Dragonthology. We loved your story Dragon Seeks a Wife. It would fit perfectly with the anthology and we would like to offer you a contract for it. Please let us know if it is still available.

Thank you so very much. I would never have known about the opportunity at all without you. I'm so very grateful to you.

A great big, huge congrats yelled from my rooftop to yours!!
Thanks, hun. I'm totally on Cloud Nine. I guess I'll have to wait for my novel to start collecting those rejection notices - LOL. Talk to you tomorrow.

Thank you! I'd be turning cartwheels, but I fear such antics belong in the days of my youth *sigh* - LOL.

Oh thank you. I am such an admirer of your ability to evoke feelings in minimal, loaded words. I keep striving to achieve your level of skill.

How exciting, specially for something you put together so quickly (often the best way, because there's no time to second-guess yourself,lol). I looked on the site (they seem like a nice little group of writers, a good place to start) and see release is due for 2013 - be sure and let us know when you have a firm date.
There are still a few typos that I want taken care of, but not too bad for a quick job. Hopefully they will let me do one more edit before the final.

I will happily let you know when it is released. *hugs*

Thanks so much. You know, it is encouragement and critiques from so many over the last few years that helped me gain confidence and skill and I still have such a long way to go. But, step one has been made, and I keep reminding myself...baby steps... :-) You have been instrumental in my confidence and I thank you so much.

Thank you so much. I think I was floating on the treadmill this morning instead of thudding :-)

Thank you so much, I can't wait. I think it will be an interesting grouping of stories and I'm looking forward to reading it myself. I am totally thrilled. I've published nonfiction before, but have never submitted original fiction for publication before this story.

Thank you so very much. I'm extremely excited :-) (bouncing off the walls...)

Thanks. I just sent back a couple of minor corrections that I want for the contract. When they change those, I'll sign it and I'll be signed for four years with this story. Fun.
