The BeagleFic has been edited into a story with characters of my own devising. Whee! Aliens! And whacking nine characters down to five! I'll want my (published) Mom to go over it for me before I send it off for consideration; I'm still waiting to hear back from her if she even wants to look at it, although I'm pretty sure she will. Once she's gone over it, I'll send it out into the big scary world for scary editor-type people to look at.
