...'cause I really don't need another t-shirt at the moment.
Wait, am I just admitting to the possibility I might have an honest-to-God story published somewhere?
The small-press Mystery and Horror LLC is starting up an anthology collection titled Strangely Funny. They put a call out for submissions, got shared on Facebook, and I gave it a look-see.
I'd like to think I'm good at writing humor stories - the handful of comments I get back on my self-published collection Last of the Grapefruit Wars are for the funnier stories I wrote (my absurdist office golf tale is an award winner no less) - so I set myself down, pounded out a tale about a vampire coping with a slayer-wannabe breaking into his home, and submitted it.
They were nice enough to send back a Writer's Agreement to secure permission to include that story.
Now it's not a 100-percent guarantee it will get printed - if they get better submissions and lack the room I'll understand - and of course the editors can revamp - heh I said vamp - that story as they deem necessary. I'm okay with the editing process just as long as they keep the core component - that Christopher Lee is a badass - of my story intact.
Meanwhile, they're still taking submissions for that Strangely Funny anthology. Deadline is June 10th 2013. It wouldn't hurt to submit something, you think?
