Earlier in the year I was fortunate enough to be able to submit a story to Q2, the Queermance Anthology (vol 2) by Clan Destine Press.
The good news: I was accepted! My short story, Purple Forever, will be in the anthology. As this is the first thing I’ll have had professionally published – and is the first thing I’ve submitted for professional publishing – I’m pretty excited.
The bad news: There isn’t any! Well, there kind of is; I’m currently down with the flu, so I can’t attend the launch at the Hare Hole in Fitzroy, Friday 17th of April (ie. tomorrow).
Purple Forever is a short story of about 10,000 words that follows the story of Yvonne and Chrissy, a pair of women from Victoria, Australia who certainly know that the course of love never runs smoothly.
Clan Destine Press have collected a number of authors with varying experience, from well-known names to complete unknowns (such as myself). It’s a humbling experience to be listed among them.
Q2 will be an excellent ebook. My (admittedly biased but still quite sound) advice is to buy it, read it and then tell all your friends to do the same.
You can find Clan Destine Press at their website or on Facebook. They also have a Twitter account, @clandestinepres, which you really should be following.
You can find details regarding Q2 on its product page.
