Oh. My. God. I just got an email from Shawna McCarthy, the editor of Realms of Fantasy! She not only wants to buy one of the stories that Carina passed on to her, but BOTH of them.
I just sold both “Returning my Sister’s Face” and “The Storyteller’s Wife” to Realms of Fantasy!
WHOA!!! Congratulations! You’ve broken in. How long did you have to wait for this news?
“The Storyteller’s Wife” is my favorite Eugie story. I’m glad it found such a good home.
Thanks so much! “The Storyteller’s Wife” is one of my favorites too. I’m so very pleased to have placed both of these in such a fantastic market. It took 150 and 255 days respectively. Woohoo!
Congrats! That’s awesome to hear!
Congrats! This calls for a Snoopy Dance of Joy!
I’m happy dancing like a maniac!
Congratulations! It’s a double!
Thanks! You could currently knock me over with a cheer. . .
Yay! Another milestone in your writing career!
One that I have been twitching and yearning for for ages and ages!
WOOOOOOOOOOT! Rock on!
HAHAHAHAHA!! Multicolored happy!
Big congrats, Eugie!!
Yay! Woo hoo for you!!
that’s freaking AWESOME!!!!!!!!
Totally! I shall be grinning like a loon for days!
I may officially hate you now – but in a good way. Seriously, congrats. Can I be you when I grow up?
Thank you! I shall bask in your hatred, ye verily .
Cool, because that *is* one of the best compliments a writer can get, I think…
It totally is. And I thank you for the spirit in which it was given .
congrats! You RULE! I’m sure hobkin is *very* proud!
Cheerleaders for you: *\o/* *\o/* *\o/*
Thanks! Hobkin is rather puzzled at my freakish, frenzied behavior, hooting and flapping throughout the house. But he’ll get over it .
Holy cow!!! That’s AMAZING!! Congrats, Eugie! You’ve definitely got to go celebrate now. =)
Thank you! I’ve been celebrating non-stop since I got the news . . . in a very geekish, Internet-oriented sort of way.
Congrats! You’re really making a name for yourself. :> Awesome news!
wooooo! you are having a hell of a year
I know! It’s almost scary.
Congratulations! She’s a wonderful editor with excellent taste, so good for you.
Thank you! I’m absolutely thrilled to be appearing between the pages of Realms of Fantasy. That’s an understatement if ever I made one!
*doing the happy dance with ya’*
I know I sent a congrats email, but double the sale deserves at least double the congrats Eugie. When you come back down to earth, send them something else.
Thanks oodles, Teresa! And to make the day even better, I emailed Carina to thank her and send her “slush survivor” details for the RoF slush website, and she told me that the story I’ve got in the current batch is also being passed on to Shawna!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
How cool is that? I ask the emphermal ether just how cool that is–that is just like probably THE best drifting-down-after-a-con pick-me-up there ever, ever, was. Makes me feel like there’s some justice in the world. 🙂 !! CONGRATULATIONS!
Re: yay! yay!
Thanks! This is absolutely the best post-con news I’ve ever gotten!

Thank you! I’m a subscriber too. Extra contrib. copy, woo! Y’know, this is the first time I’ve actually been a subscriber to a ‘zine I’ve sold to. Neat!
Good for you, Eugie!!!! Congratulations!!!!

Congratulations! That’s wonderful news. 😀
