I just got off the phone with mroctober. He said he loved my huli jing story, "Year of the Fox," and wants it for his So Fey anthology. Not only did he fill my ear with glowing words of praise that made me all squeaky and gleeful, but he's officially fulfilled another writerly milestone. He's the first editor to call me to tell me they want to buy a story!
Happy happy happy happy happy!!
OK, I read the guidelines. Unfortunately, my story would be too long and too human-oriented for this anthology. Le sigh.
The only real fairy story I have drafted is "Fairy Wine" -- and it's not a gender-bender. Oh, well. It needs to marinate in the trunk for a little while longer, anyway.
