Exercise (or Exorcise) Your Rights

Taking a short break from NaNo to speak about something near and dear to my heart, I come to the point of tomorrow. For those of my friends who are in the US, tomorrow is election day. Now, there are many things that we can look forward to because of this day. One thing is the vitriolic and misleading commercials will finally cease. At this point I am just about ready to scream if I hear another one. Another thing that will happen is too many people who care only about toeing the party line will once again be sent to Congress, resulting in a Congress that is deadlocked and completely ineffective. And the third thing that will happen is that a President will be elected.

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.
