I didn't want to post about this here just yet, but now it would appear to be official, so I'll go ahead...
I have sold my first short story!
It's a fantasy tale called "The Jewel of Creation". I was able to sell it to Leading Edge and it will appear in the April 2007 issue. I'm currently awaiting galleys for the story and I even had to answer some questions for an artist that will be drawing some sort of picture to go with the story.
It's a good first step for me, I think. And, as my friend Mir pointed out, any magazine that publishes Orson Scott Card is all right by me.
