Bardic Tales and Sage Advice (Volume VI)

It looks like the Kindle edition of Volume VI of Bardic Tales and Sage Advice is now available through Amazon.com. My wizardly fantasy story "Sing the Bones Alive", chosen Best Story of January 2013 in the annual Bards and Sages Reader's Choice Award, happens to be among the tales published in this volume.

It took me several tries to see my wizardly fantasy story published (ten rejections and one withdrawal prior to its publication in the January 2013 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly), but I've now seen it published in both a zine AND an antho. Plus, it was chosen as Best Story of January 2013 in the annual Bards and Sages Reader's Choice Award. Not bad for a story ten other places turned down!
It's funny. Way back in November, 2010, I predicted that the story might have trouble finding a home, and that it probably wouldn't find a home in a pro-zine:
Let the Rejections Begin!
Well, it did eventually find a home in Bards and Sages Quarterly, and now it's in Bardic Tales and Sage Advice, Volume VI.
