Sold another story

Great news today as I've had another story accepted for an anthology. This one's Sticky Wicket, the fun cricket'n'sex story I finished just before Christmas, and it's been accepted for the 'Play Ball' collection (and what a wonderful name that is LOL). I was a bit worried the editor might have problems with the cricketing terminology, which is pretty baffling even to those of us who have any clue about the game. I mean, just what is silly mid off? Or short leg? Or the popping crease? :) I tried very hard to put just enough jargon in to make it authentic, without making it totally unreadable but it was a fine line to walk. It's going to be fascinating seeing what other sports have made it into the anthology when it comes out.
