I just got a chapbook accepted by Dancing Girl Press!

I'm so happy and shocked I'm practically having a stroke, you know, the kind where the chunks of happiness break up into your blood stream and enter your brain, blocking all other thoughts.

That's awesome! You've been in Wicked Alice before, right? I had a piece published with them last winter - and have loved the editor's selections for the past few years. Tres cool, chica.

That's wonderful news! Congratulations!!

jane_crow -- Yeah, I was published about 4 years ago in Wicked Alice, before it became so classy. I really like the work she picks now. I'll have to look for your piece.

Mickey Z. -- the anonymous stroker... no, Safe Word is more sexy, this is more about angst and cannibals

loveandrage -- Thanks!

Rebecca -- thanks! I just got your book, it looks great! So now I have to mail one to you... Did you want Discount Heaven, Safe Word or Things you Can do with a Sharpened Pencil? (My favorite is Discount Heaven)

Patty -- thanks! I was pretty amazed!

Mickey Z. said...

Anything you write has stroke potential by definition, darling CH.

Radish King said...

I want all 3. But Discount Heaven first, since it is your favorite. Can't wait to dive in~~

So exciting! When will it be coming out? I'll be watching for it. Going to check the site out right now.

Christine said...

Patry--

I think it's coming out in April of next year. Don't worry about it -- I'll be updating plenty about the whole process, I'm sure you'll be sick of it by the time it arrives.

Reader of Depress... -- hmm, possibly a poem.
