There was me thinking that I couldn't sell a kidney let alone a short story when blow me down with a feather but I had an acceptance. Looks like Del is the latest CD-er being added to the Library Of Horror hall of fame; only this time in their witches anthology - Tales From The Cauldron - rather than the zombie one. My tale, To Touch A Witch, is 7000 words long (it was 9000 before a very intense editing session specifcally for this market) so I doubted I'd ever place it, which makes this quite pleasing.

So how long have you had your kidney on the market?   Wink

Congrats on the acceptance!  cheers  I'm sure there will be many more to follow.

Derek's there, Casey Quinn's there (modest as ever), Keith Gouveia's there (of Coscom ' Bits of the Dead' fame), and, er, yours truly seems to have nailed the last spot.
