YES YES YES IT'S TRUE!!!!! My short story It's the End of the World As We Know It is going to be published in an anthology! :D It's a self-published anthology, so a big, fancy publishing company isn't publishing it, but still! I'm so excited. :) It's called the Fauxpocalypse and the guy who started it is Misha Burnett, self-published author of Catskinner's Book, and Cannibal Hearts. The publication date is unknown, as is the cover, but most of the short stories are edited and the ones that aren't are being peer edited as we speak. :) The stories are all so good. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a part of the project. I'm so excited!
Here is an excerpt of It's the End of the World As We Know It:
Tomorrow my life will end.
Hold up, I'm not talking about suicide or anything. Nothing that dramatic. No, I'm talking about the end of the world.
Hold the screaming! I know the scientists have proven it. I know everyone's at home, hugging family and friends and saying their goodbyes, but I'm not.
Why waste your time on something that's never going to happen?
I know I said that my life was going to end tomorrow, but that was just a trap to get you to read my story.
Did it work?
My story is just way too interesting for anybody to ignore.

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
