    My First Novelette

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by X Equestris, Mar 5, 2018.

    My first novelette, "Hanging at Crosbhothar" will be published in Unsheathed: An Epic Fantasy Collection, from Hydra Publications. If you enjoy vivid action and fast-paced heroic fantasy, you can preorder now via Amazon.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B6T96VN/?tag=writingfor07a-20

    Here's a little teaser blurb for my contribution:

    A village of innocents, lynched. Blood magic. Vengeance-obsessed brigands. Ghosts of the past and a demonic pact. Knight-Lieutenant Arlise Dun must contend with all of these as she pursues the bandit lord known as Eoghan One-Ear through the wilds of Vyspa. Can she cut Eoghan down before he becomes unstoppable?

    The anthology will release on March 15.

    This is all really exciting. For one, it's set in a world and starring a character I've put a lot of work into. As my first novelette, this story will be my longest published work. And it will be the first time I get a physical contributor's copy.

    Oh I am. I just received the Kindle copy, and it turns out my story is the very first one. That makes it even better.

    As of yesterday, the anthology formally released.

    Right now, it feels like things are looking up. One of my goals for this year was to find homes for three novelettes. This was one of them. Another made it to the second round of reading at two different markets, so hopefully I'll be making another thread like this one in a few months.

    Ended up getting my physical contributors copy in the mail Friday. Seeing your work in ebook format is one thing, but actually holding it...nothing quite matches that.
