Snoopy Dance Time!

Superduperfab news today - I placed in Spinetingler's Cozy Noir contest! Which means, (drumroll, please) I'll have my very first story published in the Winter 2006 edition of Spinetingler.

How freakin' cool is that? Well, I'll tell you. It's pretty damn cool. This marks a series of firsts for me. First piece of fiction longer than a flash that I've completed, first short story written, first contest entered, first publication cred, first monies earned by my writing. Yowza! But wait! There's more! I'm also the totally stoked winner of a copy of Duane Swierczynski's The Wheelman and an ARC of his new book The Blonde.

*Edit.
The hubster just pointed out that I forgot to mention the title of my short story. So, for those of you who wanna know, look for Big Pussy Gets Whacked in the Winter issue of Spinetingler.

If this isn't cause for the Happy Dance, then I don't know what is. So in that vein, here's the awesome original OK Go video. I just love these guys!

May this be the first in a long run of good happenings (I was going to say "luck" but that denied you your well earned credit!)

Thanks everybody! Still doing a little skip-n-snoopy every once in a while & can't seem to get this silly grin off my face.

As soon as my sweetie gets back from Tucson, there will be bubbly. Hey. The good things in life are too far & few between not to celebrate in style!
