My first-ever horror story sold at last. So, long-time Legendfirians may remember Old LegendFire's early Halloween contests. The theme was Transformation. The story I wrote for it was about a little girl who watches her brother succumb to evil influence. I worked on the story ever since, finally figuring out a way to incorporate the advice in the critiques, especially fixing the build-up to murder which, in the original, didn't have a payoff. (I wasn't brave enough to go there.)
I'd offer thanks by name to those critiquers, but I have no idea who they were. So, whoever you are, thanks!
Details! "A Rabbit for Mr. Revels" sold to Hellbound Books, and will appear in their upcoming anthology Kids Are Hell. The title cracks me up. I'm sure the antho will be full of the creepiest kids imaginable. I'll post again when the antho is published.
