OH! I forgot something. I finally finally finally got my contributor’s copy of the anthology Dia de los Muertos, in which my story “The Catrinas Will Dance With Any Boy They Like” appears. The cover looks like this:
My story is the last in the book, which I consider a good thing. First story is best, but last story is next best, in my experience. Or maybe it’s that my story doesn’t go with the other stories (it’s a Day of the Dead story, but in a strange, non-Day of the Dead way) and last was the only place they could think to stuff it.
Who cares? Yay, book!

Congrats! Was that two or three years ago that you won that contest? I can't remember now.
This one wasn't a contest, but I think I got accepted over three years ago. It's been a long haul! Still—so worth it.
This is why you should always listen to me. 🙂
MA, you get credit for the one that was in Crab Orchard, not this one. Can't take credit for ALL my work, or I'm gonna make you do it for me.
Oops — I got confused. 🙂 I'll just be happy for you then…
