My first official payment for horror fiction arrived in the mail today. A $5 US note from Canadian anthology Champagne Shivers. My story is going to be included in the next anthology published in January, 2007. The anthology is going to feature work from 24 authors from six countries, so it's a good one to be a part of.
Also Martin Livings is creating a unique one-day anthology for Horror Day on his website tomorrow. It will feature one of his short stories and fiction from other authors. I have sent him my short story the Angler for inclusion in the anthology.
