A first date, to be more specific.

Another one of my short stories was just accepted by Dreamspinner's YA Imprint- Harmony Ink. It will be in the First Time for Everything Anthology, and it is a first date.

It's a sweet little story filled with awkwardness and butterflies and excitement and promises of a second date. But no smooching. Heh.

There isn't much of a story to tell with this one. I saw the open call for first time stories and decided I wanted to write a first date. And then I wrote it. And that was all.

They had over eighty submissions and this is Harmony Ink's first anthology. I'm really excited to be part of this.

Now, back to watching Leverage and thinking about that Sterling/Eliot fic I need to finish writing.

Cowboys!

Torquere had an open call for a cowboy/cowgirl anthology, so I submitted a rodeo story and they accepted it! It's called Eight Seconds and should be out this July.

I love the rodeo and a couple of years back, I really wanted to write a Dean/Castiel (Supernatural) rodeo AU where Dean was the rodeo clown and Cas was the bull rider. I have so many issues with that show though so I've kind of fallen out of writing fic for it. After attending the rodeo back in March, I decided that I really wanted to write an original story based on it. One day I will write something longer for the rodeo, but for now, I really love the short story I wrote.

One of my guys is a bull rider and the other is a bull fighter. This story makes me giggle. Seriously. Anytime I think about it, read it through, revise it, edit it, it just makes me giggle. It's a silly story and I hope it makes you guys giggle as well.

Today my first short story comes out! Yay :)

The Wolf in the Woods is part of the Torqued Tales M/M Anthology. There is also, if you are interested, a Torqued Tales F/F Anthology.

I talked a little about my writing process for this story here so I won't bore you with all the details again. Instead, I'm going to share a bonus scene and some inspiration for the story. The bonus scene happens before my story takes place.

Check out the absolutely gorgeous cover for the m/m edition of the Torqued Tales Anthology. My Little Red Riding Hood retelling, The Wolf in the Woods, will is part of the anthology, and will also be sold individually with this same cover art. This happens in two weeks (April 23rd)! I'm super excited. I can't wait to start making swag with this gorgeousness.

Rodeo

March is rodeo month in Austin. Okay. For most people, March in Austin means SXSW, but that's not something that interests me. However, I am a huge rodeo fan. I might even be writing a cowboy romance right now that deals with the rodeo. That might also be because I went four times in the two weeks it was here, which might seem like a lot, but is not enough for me.

Our first night there, we (I go with hubby) saw something we've never seen before. One of the bull riders who made it the full eight seconds, after he was off of his bull, the bull kept spinning like he couldn't pull out of it. The best part, was that it made him dizzy or something and he fell down. The bull just fell right over. That's one of the funnier things I've seen at the rodeo.

The rest of the nights there were fairly normal, but no less fun. I don't like the new rodeo clown though. Last year, for the first time since we've been doing, there was a different rodeo clown, and then there was someone new this time. The original rodeo clown, the one I'm used to, was really good at what he did. Crash Cooper. He was entertaining and I miss him. The guy last year wasn't too bad, but the one they had this year was just dull.

I actually wanted to write a Dean/Castiel Rodeo AU where Dean was a rodeo clown and Cas was a bull rider. I never got around to writing it and now I've kind of fallen out of that fandom. However, after going to the rodeo this year I decided to revisit the idea, but as an original story. Now I have a bull rider and a bull fighter finding romance together. We'll see how this works out.

I can't believe I have to wait a whole year before the rodeo comes back to Austin. This makes me sad.

I got to meet B.J. Novak tonight. Most of you know him as Ryan Howard from The Office, but did you know he wrote a book of short stories? It's called One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories. And it's awesome.

He did a book signing down at Book People tonight, the local indie bookshop here in Austin. He read a few short stories from his book and I wish I could have heard him read them all. I'm going to have to buy the audio of the book because hearing him read his stories was just wonderful. They were even funnier that way. I was probably one of the few there who had actually read the book. You could tell a lot of people were only there because of The Office.

I've been to quite a few book signings and sometimes (like with Lev Grossman) I'm horribly nervous, and others it's not so bad. I wasn't really nervous meeting B.J. In fact, I went up to him and thanked him for writing "The Ghost of Mark Twain." He thanked me, and was very genuine about it, and told me that nobody says that to him.

This flustered me. Quite badly. I don't know why. I tried to tell him that part of the reason was because of when that publisher published that Huckleberry Finn that was completely censored. I didn't quite get that sentence out but I think he knew what he was talking about and agreed with me.

I can only wonder why nobody has brought this story up with him like this. I guess he's never met anyone as passionate about banned books as I am. "The Ghost of Mark Twain" is about censorship, but it doesn't go the route you think it does. It's awesome.

I got so flustered from his thanking me, it must have been the way he thanked me, that I totally didn't bring up what else I was going to say. Like how I had to listen to The Duke of Earl after reading ""Everyone Was Singing the Same Song"; The Duke of Earl Recalls His Trip to America in June of 1962," and how "The Ghost of Mark Twain" is my favorite story in the book. At least I managed to hold off my squeeing and giggling until I was away from him.

He was wonderful and I'm so glad I got to meet him.

Have some pictures :)
