Why I should always listen to my online buddies

Remember a few weeks ago, when I grumped about my tweet story about Sleeping Beauty not being SF/F enough for Thaumatrope? And everyone said, "Oh, write a real story about it"? Well, I did, and Bards and Sages Quarterly just accepted it for their January 2010 issue!

It's called "Leafing Beauty." I am so freaking excited about this sale. Thanks, y'all!

Thanks! I think it's my shortest story to date (not counting Tweet stories), about 335 words.
