Ghost Stories, anyone?
So I heard back from the pirate anthology and the Explorers anthology and got two rejections. *pouts* I just have to remember all the anthologies I did get into. Now it's up to 6 with two more on the way. (Aurora Wolf 2 and Raven and The Writing Desk)
I can't pout for too long. Here's a new Gothic ghost story anthology that has a great cover.
They want different locations, so my story is set in Jamaica. I visited Jamaica on a cruise a few years ago, and I thought the island itself was scary enough without ghosts! Someone actually walked up to me and asked if I wanted to buy weed. I'm not even kidding you! This was the first time in my life I've been offered drugs.
I politely said no, of course!
And we saw a man by the side of the road carrying a machete. Whether this was for crops or for self defense, I have no idea. But man, Jamaica was not the place for me.
