It's a good time of year when you are told that a piece of your writing has been accepted into an anthology of work - finally. Phew!
Back in January, Litopia announced it's first anthology, in association (and all hard work carried out by) Nemesis Publishing.
"And?" I hear you say. "And?"
Well, I'm in it. Naturally! My 5,000 word response to visiting Rome for the first (and only) time - so far - which I'd drafted up back in 2008, has been accepted to join the work of other Litopians.

The first ever anthology of short fiction by Litopians will be published later this year – and all full members have the chance to be involved.
It will be a collection of the finest short fiction that Litopia has to offer, published in print and as an e-book, with the release scheduled for mid-November...
