Well, I got a pleasant surprise in my Inbox on Friday:
I'm pleased to announce that yours has been selected as a winning pitch for the CAG Classics Anthology. Competition was stiff, as we had a lot of submissions to pick through. But your story will go on to production.
Congratulations, and thanks for your effort."
That's right, I'm going to be published. Sure, the anthology won't be published until November, but I'm still proud as punch.
