"Till Death..." Accepted for Publication!

Got the good word the other day that my short story "Till Death..." was accepted for the Library of Horror anthology Made You Flinch...Again!  This pleases me greatly as this story has nearly made it into several other publications with the editors rejecting it due to not liking/being able to connect with the protagonist.  Sure, there's not a good person in this story, but like I always say, "Bad people have stories too."

In fact, this is the story that was the seed that eventually turned into Malicious Deviance.  I toyed with the idea of publishing "Till Death..." in MD, but I am weary of publishing my own work in an anthology I edit.  There's nothing wrong with doing that, I just rather not judge my own work that way.

Anyway, thanks Bill Tucker and Jonathan Moon for seeing the potential in this twisted story.
