Story Hat Trick

I remember saying to my husband, while writing "Bleaker Collegiate Presents an All-Female Production of Waiting for Godot", that no one other than me would ever want to read this story*.

Then I sold it. Then I sold it again. Then I discovered that Ellen Datlow gave it an honourable mention in Best Horror of the Year #4.

You know what? Now I'm going to finish writing all the other stories that I was sure no one would want to read.

*He reads all of them anyway. That's one of many reasons why he's my husband.

That story really sticks with one. Be prepared to sell it many more times!

Thanks! Maybe I'll try selling it as a podcast next!
