Now that contracts are signed and delivered, I can announce that my story, “Though Thy Lips Are Pale,” will be appearing in Dark Delicacies 3, which is rumored to feature such literary talents as Chuck Palahniuk, Heather Graham and Sherilyn Kenyon.

I wrote “Though Thy Lips Are Pale” when I was in France after we traveled through Brittany, past La Foret de Brocéliande, otherwise known as Paimpont Forest of Arthurian legend.

According to legend, bad things have happened in Paimpont.

According to my story, bad things definitely happened in Paimpont.

And there you have it.
