Was given a "last chance offer" last Sunday to contribute a "shortish story" to this year's Tales of the Shadowmen anthology. Cranked out a 1900 word story, "Marguerite's Tears" (as in Marguerite, Lady Blakeney, the wife of the Scarlet Pimpernel), and sent it off today.
The publisher of Black Coat Press lives in France and it's midnight there . . . damn time zones! Now I have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out if it's been accepted or not!
