Well, normally I don't shout until the contract, or the money, or both, are in my hands, but this is too good to stay quiet about. I've just had an acceptance notification for 'The Allicholy Tale of the Dispunged Dark Lady' - a story that was written as part of the Green Thought in an Urban Shade project.
The story will be appear in Tell Tales 3. And this is the really, really wonderful bit - the first two anthologies were packed with talent.
As the editors say: Tell Tales Volume I had work from a number of well-known authors like Matt Thorne, Niall Griffiths and Rajeev Balasubramanyam, reached #4 on the amazon.co.uk best-selling anthologies list and has remained in the Top 200 ever since, making it one of the most consistently ordered anthologies in the UK.
Tell Tales Volume II included contributions from literary heavyweights such as; Orange Futures winner Rachel Trezise, Booker Prize finalist Romesh Gunesekera, John Llewellyn Rhys Prize winner Kamila Shamsie, and Maggie Gee, who was shortlisted for the Orange Prize in 2002.
So you're dealing with a very happy writer this morning!
