I'm really nervous about announcing this for some reason. I think I don't want to jinx it.
But I've signed the paperwork and am going to mail it today, so I think it's safe. And it's not the kind of news that anyone else is going to want to be first to announce.
I just sold my first piece of fiction to IDW. It's a prose short story called "Completely Cold" and it'll appear as a back-up feature to all of their September comics. Especially cool for me is the fact that The Keep #1, which is adapted from one of my all-time favorite horror novels, is coming out that month.
Big sigh. Still nervous.
