DAW Anthology Contract

After a phone call this morning, I can announce one of the pieces of awesome-awesome news I've been sitting on. I sold an anthology to DAW!

To say I am pleased is an understatement. To say that I happy-danced all around the house when I got the news and my husband finally got to see me in the throes of such a victory dance is true. For the rest of the week, if I was down or distracted or anything like that…he would come into my office and mimic my happy-dance at me. Minus all the arm flailings, of course.

But… I sold an anthology to DAW.

I have reached one of my big goals. I am a happy-happy anthologist.

About the anthology. It is called HUMAN FOR A DAY and I am in the process of acquiring my authors. Here is the blurb I used to sell it:

The day is finally here. By will, wish, spell, or curse, those who are not human have become human—and mortal—for a day. Experience the joy of the mannequin who softens from wood into flesh and the fear of the god cast down from his divine heights. Feel the anticipation of the immortal solider that finally has a chance to die and the desire of the monster to regain her mortal heart. Not everyone who becomes human for a day wants this transformation. For all, this will be a day they never forget.

This is going to be such a good anthology!

I wouldn't say "DAW got a clue." "Jennifer made it to the big leagues and is now able to pitch to DAW with authority" is a lot more like it.

You got it in one, Seanan. I couldn't figure out how to say it without sounding weird.

Re: DAW Finally got a clue!
More like I finally leveled up to the point that I was worth DAW's notice. Before now, I didn't have the credentials. To me, it's like I've been an editor for long enough to finally get the prestige class: DAW anthologist.

But I appreciate the sentiment.

Re: DAW Finally got a clue!
I definitely need to pick your brain sometime. Or study your career. I'm a fledgling anthologist at the moment, but I have my eyes on the DAWprize. :> Looking forward to seeing the end product.

I'm not sure what I can tell you but if we ever meet up at a con, I'll be happy to chat (schedule pending).
