That's great Sandtiger. I wish I hadn't have started into a full length novel and did short stories instead. It's too tough to do a full novel right off the bat. I'm afraid to leave the story though and lose the flow of it and the feel of it now. Look forward to your second and third story Jana. That's great news. Doing the happy dance along side you.

CONGRATULATIONS SANDTIGER!!!! does that happy dance look anything like Snoopy's? because he had a most amazing happy dance, made you want to dance right along with him. I look forward to reading your stories.
Am in the middle of 'Wraeththu' by Storm Constantine and 'Dreams Made Flesh' by Anne Bishop. I have never read Constantine before and this is really new. Very edgey because alot of descriptive sexuality but a culture that is in the middle of designing itself.. Very remarkable. I'm liking it alot and have to consider this one a rereader. [smiling at ya]

Seeing the sword dancer break into a happy dance, the gryphon ducks to avoid the swing of the blade.

Congratulations Sandtiger. Way to go!!!

Do let us know when you have a firmer date and be sure to remind us when that date approaches.

Speaking of, when's the next anthology with one of your stories in it due out?

I loved the Wraethu books by Storm Constantine Max. Definitely rereadable. I enjoyed those books even though they were very different. I liked the characters and the way she handled them. Good reads. I think I remember Sandtiger saying the next short story will be out in July. I hope I remember right. I'm looking forward to it very much. Jana writes beautifully. I'm her number one fan. Hope that doesn't scare her too much. LOL haha

Thanks everyone!

Max, Snoopy Dance! ::laugh:: - one of my friends who saw me about two minutes after I found out on Saturday (I was at a convention when I heard the news - though I waited for final confirmation before I posted) suggested I looked a lot like Snoopy. ::Grin::

Oh, I heard Anne Bishop reading from Dreams Made Flesh on the weekend. She's excellent.

And Trys, the second one comes out in July, in "Women at War" Not too, too long now. I'll definately let you know when things come out.

Cheryl, no worries there. I think I can consider you my first fan after my family. :-)I still have my stuffed vampire bear sitting on my writing desk.

Congratulations Sandtiger!! Outstanding. So, what is your pen name?

Just finished reading "A Song for Arbonne" and like all of Guy Kay's works, it was outstanding. It may just be my favorite of his. A wonder love story with lots of sword play and arrow shooting. And you learn to love many of the characters and hate/despise a couple. Very emotional at times, really gets the blood to flowing.

I go by my real name "Jana Paniccia" I couldn't imagine writing under soemthing else.

Granted, I've also told people that when and if I get married, I am also keeping my name. I am quite attached to it.

Ah, Guy Kay...I picked up the book club editions of the Fionavar Tapastry (From the 80s) so am reading them again. Lovely books.

Oh, and I got a copy of Julie Czerneda's Migration. (They had a few copies at EerieCon this past weekend even though it doesn't come out for another week)
