The invitation I almost didn't get...

I sold a story…and everybody knew about it but me!

I’ve been working on the publishing side of my business today, and took a break to check GoogleReader, where I have all my blog feeds. I saw that my friend, frequent coauthor, and stellar author in her own right, Teresa Noelle Roberts, had updated, so I popped over to her blog.

She’d just announced a sale to Cheeky Spanking Stories, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel.

That’s odd, thought I. I sent Rachel a spanking story… ::checks spreadsheet:: almost a year ago. But Rachel often has calls for submissions before the anthology has a title, so I thought maybe my story was still under consideration for another anthology.

But partway down the TOC that Teresa posted, there was my story title, my name, and a shoutout from Teresa.

Say what??

I went through all my files—spreadsheet, work email account, story folders—and found no contract, no correspondence (other than my initial submission), nothing.

So I pinged Rachel, and sure enough, she’d included my story in the book! Somehow my contract slipped through the cracks. She attached it, I reviewed it and signed it and fired it back to her.

::laughs and laughs::

Without further delay, I’d like to announce that “Invitation to a Spanking” will appear in Cheeky Spanking Stories!

Here’s the TOC, courtesy of Teresa’s blog. Oh, and it’ll be out next month!  *\o/*
