"Burning The Midnight Oil" to NewMyths.com!

I just got an acceptance for my story "Burning The Midnight Oil" from New Myths! This story started out as an FWO challenge to write about an oddly matched couple. It was initially titled "A Lovely Light" (a reference to the Edna St. Vincent Millay poem), but before I started submitting it, I decided this title better conveyed the sense of flame / work ethic, both of which are central to the story.

... actually, now that I think it over, it was submitted to 2-3 venues as "All Work, No Play," until an editor criticized the title, I looked at it, and went, "Oy. They're right. What was I thinking?" Only then did I light on (heh) the current title.

It should be coming out in their December 2011 issue. There's also a mini-interview, which I haven't sent back yet as I'm waiting for clarification on one of the questions.
