I couldn't say any details until the publisher released their official list, but I sold a story to Flame Tree Publishing's Urban Crime anthology, to be published next year! 

Not only is it pro-rate and SFWA recognized, not only am I just thrilled it's not a romance, not only are their anthology releases usually hardbacks, I didn't realize when they said it would include classic stories along with the new submissions that meant I get to be in an anthology with Dostoyevsky and Arthur Conan Doyle! 

Getting cut from FFC doesn't feel quite so bad. (But now I'm scared of drawing mystery for SSC and everyone expecting me to be good at it...this is 300 words more than the SSC limit and I had actually been rereading it and second-guessing myself horribly the night before I got the e-mail from Flame Tree. I seriously put off reading it until I looked at Outlook closer and realized it started with "We are delighted to inform you..." I know nothing.)

It won't be available until May, but I will try to post when it's for sale! 

Now I feel like if I get mystery, I better do REALLY well.

And for what its worth, since at their current rate of publication I might get paid NEXT year, I found out around the same time I won the Fall Fiction War. In a weird coincidence, both stories are set in Denmark. Throw in the romance I sold this year and that's three stories set in Denmark and the other two (a Spring FW finalist and a flash romance with Spark Magazine) had Danish protagonists. 

I think I have theme going.
