A _holm grindhouse double-feature!

Today has been a good day. Nay, a great day. Not to mention an unprecedented day (for me, at least.)

Today was a two-acceptance day.

I just received word that my short story The Toll Collectors has been accepted by Beat to a Pulp, and is scheduled to go live sometime in February. The Toll Collectors is a creepy little cross-genre crime/horror piece, and I couldn't be happier at where it ended up.

But wait -- there's more! I also received word that The Well, a nasty little piece of horror flash that may well be the scariest thing I've ever written, is going to appear in Flashes in the Dark! When, you ask? Funny thing, that. It's also gonna go live sometime in February. Which means a big fat February double-feature of me, and I, for one, think that's very, very cool.

So a big thanks to David and Tony, the editors of BtaP and FitD, respectively. You two just made my day. And stay tuned for further updates, as I'll be certain to let you know when the stories go live. But in the meantime, you might want to go check out the other fantastic stories up on their sites...
