Acceptance into Fangtales!

My vampire short story 'Services' has been accepted into Wyvern Publications' Fangtales anthology! I'm really pleased as it's a young adult anthology which is the area I've decided to concentrate on for the future. There will be some editing of the manuscript which I'm looking forward to getting involved with.

  • Congrats to BG and Lou. The Fangtales antho sounds like a really interesting idea.
  • Hey, great to be in your company Bangkok Girl! I was wondering if any other TBers would be on it. Re editing, I think that means mine needs a bit of work, that's all!
  • Well done both!
  • Congrats both-well done ;)
  • Well done both of you. Onwards and upwards - the only way to go.

  • Well done, Lou and BG. Now that your foot/feet are in the door...
  • Wow, well done BG! I will go and check it out.
  • Are they still accepting submissions or has it been closed?

    Otherwise, is there another anthology still open for this genre?
  • My god that is one brilliant story, BG! Read it, everyone!

    It is closed I'm afraid IA. Do you mean for YA in this genre, or any? Pill Hill press are good for horror anthologies. YA markets are a bit rarer, hence my pleasure at getting into this one!
  • Horror anthologies are fine. I will check out Phill Hill then. Cheers.
  • Congratulations Lou and Bangkok Girl.
    I interviewed Holly about Wyvern last year http://talltalesandshortstories.blogspot.com/2010/07/interview-with-holly-stacey-head-editor.html
  • Bloody good story, BG! Well done
  • Well done BG on both your successes.
  • Well done, I'd try to write for youthdom but can't see it occuring lol
  • Thanks Tracy - an interesting interview. Great to put some details to some one I've emailed with!
  • Well done Lou and Bangkok Girl. The first of many successes for you both I'm sure.
  • Bangkok Girl - an absolutely riveting story! I love first-person accounts and you've written this so well. You've covered a plethora of issues from familial relationships to mental health concerns, cleverly examining them without openly laying blame - though we, as the reader can see who should be answerable.

    I loved it. Well done. :)
  • Thank you Lily C for taking the time to comment and saying something so nice! You'll have to buy a copy of Fangtales when Lou and I get our stories in it!
  • I'll certainly add it to my list, BG.
