The Price


A story accepted!

The Price
will be published in the Winter 2009 issue of Mirror Dance, an online fantasy zine. It's an interesting zine, and some good stories there too.

Only a short time ago I was speaking about finally finding a title for my story about a sword, and finally came up with a title for this particular tale after an epic struggle of nearly two years to find the right title. I sent it out last week, after finding a title at last, and a few days later an e-mail arrived to advise The Price has been accepted!

What's it about? A magical sword. And what the cost of a magical sword can be.

I celebrated this evening with a small glass of red wine.


  1. Congratulations! I had a rejection from Shimmer ...

    I have lots of trouble with titles too.

    How exciting to be getting married in the Philippines - I can never remember if it's 1l and 2 ps or vice versa. Keep us updated.

  2. Thanks Liz, and thanks CherryPie.

    Liz: Philippines - Technically, it's 3Ps and 1L. I prefer the Tagalog (main language there) word for the country: PILIPINAS. No worries about doubled consonants then. :)
