  1. I wasn’t sitting by my computer constantly checking my mail. I swear. It was just a coincidence that I happened to be there when it arrived. Honestly!My only defence is that it’s my first sale. :)

  2. Would be fun to see your scorecard for the issue: X acceptances, X secondary announcements. That’s really an unexpected thing for me about personal blogs: welcome and delightful promotion which has that benefit of sincerity and diverse reach. It’s certainly brought a lot of periodicals to my attention that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

  3. Blush.

    Ann & I were on the phone about it about 30 seconds afterward, too.

    Hey, thanks for not holding a grudge about me calling you Patrick Nielsen Hayden… ;)

  4. Ha! No, I wouldn’t hold it against you. But I plan on teasing you with it for the rest of your career.

  5. I’m laughing really hard right now because I know both of those people! And if I hadn’t gotten their e-mails too, I might not have known about their good news…
