I'm settling into my position as managing editor of AnthologyBuilder.  I love it!  Love the stories, and the experience, and meeting a number of new and interesting authors.  Nancy Fulda has brought Merrie Haskell aboard to head the public domain section.  Welcome, Merrie!
 
Our home loan still hasn't closed, so we're in moving limbo.  It makes it hard to check the net and get anything productive done beyond packing and waiting.  Nancy has kindly offered to shoulder my duties while I move.  Thanks, Nancy!  We've had to extend all of our moving plans twice now, but it looks (hopefully) like the end is in sight.  Buying a home in this market has been no easy feat.  I'm looking forward to actually starting work on the home.

It looks like I might have to download my website and find alternate hosting for it.  Google is switching their websites to Google Sites which apparently doesn't allow java, custom css or even html editing...  I suppose it was too good to last at only $10 a year.  Any of my web savvy friends know where I should go next?  My domain's registered through GoDaddy, but I'm not really tied to it.  I have no idea how to move a whole website.  Any tech help would be appreciated... Lauren?  Help! ;) :D
 

I've just gotten everything confirmed and sent off to the publisher. My first sold story will be accompanied by a Tim Sale illustration! I'm so giddy with excitement. And honored to have such friends.

If any of you are wondering, Tim Sale is a comic book artist very well known in his field for work on Batman: The Long Halloween, Spiderman: Blue, and numerous other runs. His work is also seen predominantly in the show Heroes. I have been a regular poster on his message boards for the last few years, and we've met a few times at different events. When he heard about my first story sale to The Drabbler, he offered to illustrate it.

The editors seem almost as excited as me!

I got to see his initial sketch and the finished inks, and they're so much fun. This will be a publication I treasure forever. For so many reasons.

Tim Sale offered to illustrate my story, "Vanishing Act".  I think I might be dreaming this whole thing.  Tim Sale illustrating my story?!  I never would have even dared to believe that might happen.  Not even in an alternate universe. *faints*
