What Keeps Me Here

Hellooooooo!  Well, the super speedy submission to Pill Hill's Haunted anthology paid off.  Accepted!!!  Really chuffed with this one.  Am pretty pleased with the story and it should turn out to be a fantastic book.  "What Keeps Me Here" is yet another vampire episode but it relies heavily on the other installments in the tale of my crazy vamp.  The stories "The First", "Pale", "Cruelty" and a few which are currently shortlisted for other anthologies are all important to this piece.  However, I think it works quite well on its own, too.  Based on the Evanescence song "Haunted", it was originally named after the song, but when I discovered the antho was to be called "Haunted" too, I changed it to the line "What Keeps Me Here", taken from a later lyric in the song which is "Still Can't Find What Keeps Me Here".

In other exciting news, my copy of Ethereal Tales arrived yesterday.

Eeeeek, how awesome is it?!?!?!?  Totally lovin' it.  It features my story "A Pirate's Life for Me" and Teresa, the editor, did a great job with it.  She's fantastic.  Everyone must run along to the website and buy a copy!!!  It's only £2.50 - a bargain for a fine selection of fiction.  Shall definitely be submitting to this venue again.

Well, I better get back to my final essay for university.  Only this and one exam and I can graduate.  Thank the gods!!!!

Bye bye bunnies!

Lotsaluv, Em
