I just got a story accepted to Aurora Wolf. The story is called Shaman Born, it was written waaaay back last May. I subed it to two different markets that kept it for 100+ days before emailing to say they were going out of business, then I got two rejections.
I am excited to finally get it published. The story was inspired by a trip to the Mammoth site in Hot Springs, SD. When I found out there were pygmie mammoths. This minature mammoths were only six feet tall. My first thought on seeing the statue was "I wonder if nomadic humans ever rode them?"
They do in Shaman Born!
