This was my first published work, the short story "The Spirit & The Woods" in the fantasy anthology "Fablewood", published by Ape Entertainment. Incredibly exciting and daunting all at the same time.
Here's the description from Amazon.com
Featuring thirteen complete fantasy stories, from sword-and-sorcery to slice-of-life, Fablewood features the creations of Ryan Ottley and Manny Trembly,
Flight alumni JP Ahonen and Sarah Mensinga, and Chris Studabaker with his Day Prize-nominated tale which Dave Sim called 'evocative, austere and expressionistic'.
