SALE! To Apex's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE URBAN KIND anthology

I'm pleased to announce that my story "Green Tears on Black Velvet" has been accepted to the CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE URBAN KIND anthology, edited by jennifer_brozek, and published by Apex Publishing!

WOOOOOOHOOOOOO! (Happy Writer Dance! Happy Writer Dance!)

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE URBAN KIND is an anthology that "combines the dark allure of urban legends with the high stakes of alien encounters" (links to article at Apex site). As I like both urban legends and aliens, I'm thrilled to be a part of the anthology!

It's a very very nice sale for me, in many ways. "Green Tears on Black Velvet" is one of the stories where I really tried to dive deeper into character, to really get inside my main character's skin, and to really tell the story from their point of view. I've been working on this aspect of my writing for a while, and it's been difficult and frustrating at times, so I'm very happy that the story worked for Jennifer Brozek and for Apex.

Again: WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!! Yes!
