Storm Chaser anthology off to Whiskey Creek Press

After finishing the last polish, I've finally sent Storm Chaser Shorts off to the submissions editor of Whiskey Creek Press. Ten short stories totally 15,000 words -- seven set before the events of Storm Chaser, and three set afterward, ranging from humor and action to one that's just a bit mystical. I have no idea what changes they might want, or when the release date might be -- or even if they'll accept it at all, if it doesn't meet their expectations. After all, it's a separate submission from the original novel; it could still be rejected.

Meanwhile, I'm going to take a week or so off and try and catch up with some chores that need done, then dive back into other projects: The fire department history book, and getting Coming Attractions and Radio Red back into submission circulation. This is all contingent on when Whiskey Creek sends edits back on Storm Chaser -- should be any time now -- which naturally will become first priority.

Then I'll have to start working on the next novel! Red is For Ick is still with the agent who requested a full, but unfortunately she's on maternity leave now. She's okay with simultaneous submissions as long as she knows about it, but I haven't had time to deal with that anyway.

Selling is as much a part of the full time job of writing as writing itself is. Must keep plugging away at it!
