It's really beginning to sink in. On Easter weekend, at Minicon, Sky-Tinted Waters is going to be released. It's an anthology of short stories from local writers. This will be the first story I've had published. Granted, it's just a limited-run printing done by a small-time local publisher, but it's a start. I've also got two short stories currently being considered for semi-pro markets. One of them even made it past the slush pile, which is a pretty big deal on its own.
