Also I sold a story to Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores . It should come out in April.
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.
