SALE!

I have sold "Snipe Hunting" to Apex Digest. It will be published in the April 2010 issue. I am super excited about this sale because it is my first SFWA qualifying short sale! Two more and I shift from associate affiliate to active.

Edit: Actually, I'm an affiliate member. With this sale I qualify as associate member and in two more sales, I'll be active. My mistake. I got them mixed up.

Even better, "Snipe Hunting" is the short story that inspired my upcoming anthology CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE URBAN KIND.

That's another market ticked off of my "Must sell to" list.

I'm already an associate member of SFWA (being a professional in the field) but I really do want to be an active member.

Are you an associate or affiliate? Back when I joined, an affiliate membership was available to professionals in the field, but an associate membership was for people who had made only one professional sale. (I joined as an associate, and as soon as I had my other two sales I upgraded to active.)

If you're currently an affiliate, then you ought to upgrade to associate as soon as you can.

Oh, you're right. I'm an affiliate and can now upgrade to associate. I get confused sometimes.

Congratulations!

And I think associates now have more privileges than they did when I was an associate.
