2016 was quite a year. Moved to Korea and got married. Funny thing is Korean servers don’t let me look at the Cosmic Root and Eldritch Shores website so it was hard to see what was going on with my story.
Turns it was just published on the site only a few days ago. Dec 28. You have to be a subscriber to the website to read the whole thing. It’s in the Young People from 4 to 400 section.
Check out the website. Hopefully you have better luck than I do here in Korea. 🙂
Also I sold a story to Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores . It should come out in April.
So the flash fiction piece about Sherlock Holmes is out. It’s available through the following links:
• print and digital copies
• kindle copies
Sold a story to Splickety Prime for their News that Never Happened issue. A little something about the infamous Sherlock Holmes.
Writertopia has put out their eligibility list for the Campbell award, available at: http://www.writertopia.com/awards/campbell
I’m in my second year of eligibility for “Birth of an Apocalypse” and see quite a few familiar names alongside me.
Winning’s a long shot, but it’s still nice to see my name on the list. A nice way to start the new year. (The lunar one.)
Will also have some news soon about upcoming stories.
“Birth of an Apocalypse” was originally published in the collection A Dark Phantastique, edited by Jason Brock, in 2014. Now the story is available on Amazon and Smashwords as its own little bundle of joy. Other ebook retailers to follow soon.
A young executive discovers the angels who have tried to seduce her over the past few years may have a darker purpose, one she has few options to escape.
It was an exhausting week, but I got my entries in for the Toronto short story contest and the AE micro contest.
Basically, Monday night, I got 2 hours sleep because my call time for Tuesday was 5:00am.
Tuesday, 4 hours commute, 10 hours work
Wednesday, 4 hours commute, 15 hours work
Thursday, 4 hour commute, 15 hours work
Doesn’t leave much time for sleep. But I enjoyed working on the Defiance set again, even if I was damn cold.
On Sunday I saw a forum post about the contest at Flash Fiction Chronicles, 250 words max, and quickly wrote a story since it was the last day.
AE: the Canadian Science Fiction Review also has their contest up, deadline March 2. This year the theme is degrees. 200 words max, including the title. Must have a science fiction element.
It’s official. I sold a story to the Dark Phantasique anthology. Don’t know the publishing date yet.
It’s also great to see the buds bursting into leaves. It seems to have happened almost overnight. I guess spring is really here. 🙂
A new story is available on Amazon and Smashwords. It should come up on Kobo in the next couple of days.
A twelve-year-old girl with magical talents has one chance to escape her saurian captors, but soon discovers her mother’s plan comes with a terrible cost.
