Early Bounty

The Fall 2011 Prairie Fire is out (this link is to the home page while it's the current issue; for future visitors, it's Vol. 32 No. 3) and I have a short story in it!

I had thought it wouldn't be published till Winter 2012. This is such a pleasant surprise. It will be really fun to see the rest of the issue as well. I'm still away from home (and my brother is recuperating VERY WELL, thanks!) so I am awfully glad I had my husband open the mail.

And yes, I brought writing, and yes, I am able to work on it! That feels rewarding, too.

It's a little early -- or late, depending on the country -- for Thanksgiving, but there is much for which I am very grateful this harvest season! (Which you can tell by all the exclamation points!!!)
