My short story, Seeing Red, is going to be included in Pugalicious Press's YA steam punk anthology Real Girls Don't Rust. I am super excited about this one. :) I love YA, I love steam punk, I get to use my real name with it. Plus, it gives me an excuse to make some steam punk jewelry for a giveaway. :)
But the really cool thing is that when I posted this news on FB by sister-in-law told me how awesome her daughter thinks it is to have a real writer in the family.
And she meant me.
I still can't call myself 'a writer.' I mean, I can here, where people understand and don't think I'm crazy. But in the real world I would never introduce myself that way. It's pretty cool that my nine-year-old niece thinks of me as a writer, and is proud of that.
I told her I had better get to work and not disappoint!
Thanks, Hannah, for the awesome pick-me-up!
