First what, you ask. First time someone has paid me for something I wrote, first time I’ve had to sign a contract for them to publish a story I’ve written. Got the contract by email today. I’ll print it out (2 copies, 1 for me), read, sign, and mail it back. Deadline for submissions is in December, and they expect publication in the summer of next year. This press is a very small organization, so payment is equally small. I expect they’ll make back their payments when we buy a copy or copies of the book the story appears in. Yep, buy. No free copies, that’s how small it is, but it’s a start, a foot in the door.
