Final cut of Door with No Names, shopping Once She Danced

I've put the final finishes on Door with No Names. I finally had time this morning to sit down and get Sherwood Smith's comments integrated into the story, plus deal with some very useful reader feedback I've gotten.

It stands at 5,400 words now, almost 25% larger than originally intended but I'm quite happy with the story. I'm going to shop it around now, no more revisions.

I shot out Once She Danced to Dreams and Nightmares, who complimented it but said they couldn't use it. Given the nature of it, I'm not sure there are many markets for it -- but I'm digging around just in case. May just put it up on my website soon.
