I'm so excited to announce that Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, will publish this story in an anthology called Once Upon Now, hitting stores and on line retailers on October 11th!

A Prequel to "Mermaids and the Vampires Who Love Them" - Cupid has an epic party, but, whoops! He accidentally sinks Charon's Ferry. Hades is not amused. To avoid the ultimate penalty, Cupid has to travel to Hawaii and do a favor for Hades - ensure that his daughter kisses the heir to the Bullseye Mattress Kingdom and never comes into her demigod powers. Cupid must combat a lukewarm cup of coffee, a beady-eyed crab, and his own heart if he's to succeed. 

Business major Phoebe Thompson needs a job or she and her mom will have to spend another month eating nothing but Spaghetti Loops. There is an amazing opportunity for a management trainee at the Bullseye Mattress Kingdom. All she has to do is pass three tests. What could go wrong when she has the "help" of a certain love god?

In this modern retelling of "Princess and the Pea," a young woman has to prove her worth not by sleeping on mattresses but by selling them.

I love you and your stories so much. I hope this and Bluebeard and Amira and Betwixtall get into the final round. I'd buy the crap out of that anthology!
