Writing on the shoulders of giants

I’ve sold a story!

Very pleased to be able to say that Fireside Fiction have bought a story from me called Rab the giant versus the witch of the waterfall. They have an announcement here

It’s a modern fairy tale featuring giants and witches (obvs) and is silly. I hope you like it when they publish it.

I’m pleased for many reasons. They are good people with a politics I like. They publish wonderful stories. It’s a fun, daft story which makes me smile. And they pay at a professional level.

Payment is always nice, exposure gets you arrested, but there is a definition by the SFWA of what counts as a professional pay scale and this is the first time I have sold at that level. Normally it’s a token fiver and a comp copy, which is always appreciated, but for someone to like something enough to pay the pro rate is such a wonderful boost and write the shock.

Probably the only time I’ll make this level but, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to be smug about it for a bit.
