I'm glad you liked the story.

And yes, IGMS has bought another story of mine, "Accounting for Dragons," which will probably appear in issue 8.

AWESOME!  What did you end up doing with it, revision wise?

Eric, you need another novel.  Something more...Scalzi-like, I think, to show off your versatility when sending out manuscripts.

I took out the joke at the beginning that wasn't working and made other minor tweaks based on the feedback at writers' group.

Three hours after I sent it to Edmund, he bought it, making it my fastest acceptance ever.

I heard there's going to be an IGMS anthology.  Do you know if your story is going to be in it?

My stories "Tabloid Reporter to the Stars" and "Taint of Treason" will be in the IGMS anthology.  Also, the cover of the book will use the artwork from Tabloid.  Naturally, I'm thrilled--and the fact that the anthology payment was more than I was paid for the stories originally didn't hurt.
