My First Fiction Sale!

I have some exciting news today--my first sale! Yay!
Pseudopod has decided to buy my story The Disconnected to publish as a podcast. It will be available for free download on their site. I'll post a link when it's available.

One nice thing about this sale is that it is audio rights ONLY. That means that I can still try to sell first printing rights to a professional print market.

A few stats in case people are interested:
Time since I started writing fiction: 2 years, 5 months
Time since I started writing short stories: 1 year, 1 month
Total rejections before this sale: 124
Total rejections since last sale: ---(I'll fill this in for future sales)
Time since last sale: ---(I'll fill this in for future sales)
Total rejections of this story before this sale: 8
Total responses from Pseudopod before this sale: 1

I'm very excited. My head is floating in the clouds!

At the very least, I will take my wife out to a lovely dinner, and quite possibly blow most of the earnings on that.

I will also celebrate by writing a new revised cover letter that includes the new credit--exciting! :)
