Good News for ME!
I don't know how many of you know this, but I submitted a story for an anthology of crime/pulp/noir stories coming out this November. The book, the second in the series, will be called Live Free or Die, Die, Die! and my story (hopefully) will be titled the same. It is published by Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire magazine.
I say hopefully titled the same because I entered my story to be the title story, and to get that position would be an honor and extremely cool (as far as I'm concerned). The good news is that Rick e-mailed me the other day to tell me that my story is definitely in the book (yay!) and that I am actually in the running for the title story (double yay!). I don't know if I'll get it or not since I have no way of seeing the competition and therefore have no idea where I stand, but really it's awesome just to get in there.
For those of you unfamiliar with New Hampshire Pulp Fiction, you can check out their website here, and you should also check out the first book in the series, Live Free or Undead (did I mention he's editor of New Hampshire magazine?). I know you can find it in Portsmouth (which is where I found it) or you can look around for it. That's what the internet is for. I'm not doing all the work for you.
Anyway, as I said, the book comes out this November, and whether I'm the title story or not I'll be in there somewhere, so show your support. I'll be reminding people when the time gets closer.
