I am to be in a book!

There are two anthologies of delight coming out from New Smut Project. They are going to be full of great stories. And--and I am going to have a story of mine in there!

This is my publishing debut. I wrote a thing, and it was accepted and soon you will all be able to read it. It is a litle departure for me because it is set in the modern era. (Late 1980s.)

Here is a preview:


Author: EGLANTINE

Bio

Eglantine began writing fiction just after learning her letters. She has been doing it ever since. She is currently dividing her writing between fiction about the Age of Sail and an account of the life of Christopher Marlowe. Eglantine’s work can be found on Livejournal. She also has a Tumblr account.

She has always lived by the water, and is unafraid of large animals. She lives in Coney Island, New York, within sight of the waves.

Excerpt (Red, Right, Returning, in Heart, Body, Soul)

Islanders! Ferries! This is so instantly familiar that I want to read it right now :) Allow me to raise a glass to your first publication, and here's hoping there will be many more! Especially the Marlowe. You soooo have to get your Marlowe stories published. They are a thing of beauty

I thought of you, of course, when I was writing it. So strange that so many of our experiences are the same. I bet the ferry boats smell the same too. (Old coffee, salt, motor oil, and heat.)

The Marlowe stuff needs to be organized and made into a cohesive whole. I am a little daunted by that. But I am absolutely going to try.

Wow! This is a great news! But we all knew that you'd do this sooner or later!

Congratulations! This is the first step on the road so keep going and don't be daunted. I found it helps to keep writing shorts while I work on the big project - that way you see results and it encourages you!

I like your bio! A good bio tells me a lot about an author/book. (Can't read the excerpt, alas. At work.)

A big congratulations!
