Hah, so soon after my last announcement, I’m extremely pleased to tell you that I’ve had another acceptance. This one is for a short story entitled “Mirror Twenty-Two”, and it will be published by Haunted Waters Press.
This one is ‘for the love’, meaning, non-paying, but another credit, none-the-less. 🙂
Best of all, it will be available online, and you can read it for free! I will include the link when it’s up.
“Mirror Twenty-Two” is part of an ongoing project of mine, wherein the Canadian Artefact Recovery and Containment organisation sends teams of Recovery/Containment officers on mission to secure paranormal objects.
“Mirror Twenty-Two” is an extremely dangerous artifact in a farmhouse, and CARC Team Alpha must recover it at all costs.
…though there’s a little girl in the attic with it.
I look forward to sharing it with you.
In other news, work on the novel is going swimmingly. I cracked the 40k word mark the other day, and the end is actually coming soon than I expected; I think it will cap off at around 65k or 70k, depending on how things go. Nearly there! I feel a limit break coming on…
Thanks for reading.
I’ve had my third acceptance!
Well, my piece was accepted in March, but they were dealing with volume 1. The contract finally was sent out, and I signed it. I wanted to wait until it was ‘official’ before announcing it. Good things come to those who wait!
I’ve been really bolstered by this one.
One piece published is a fluke.
Two could be a horrible mistake.
Three is the start of a beautiful friendship. Three is pattern. Three is what starts a career. Man oh man am I ever happy to be telling you guys about my third publication.
My short story “Monday Matinee Madness” is about a Projectionist surviving in the zombie apocalypse, running films every Monday. It will appear in Zombies Gone Wild vol.2, edited by Michael S. Gardner and Matt Nord. It’s sure to be an eclectic mix of tales of the zombie apocalypse. I will make sure you hear about the release date!
Thanks for checking in ever so often. I hope to share more great news, like this, with you more and more frequently.
But for now, I’m 34,000 word into the book, and it’s coming along nicely. Solved some problems I was having about conflict and the antagonist. My next post will be all about PAX, which I was at over the weekend. It was way. cool.
Thanks for reading.
Yes, good news indeed!
I’ve received another acceptance for a short piece!
It’s an anthology of zombie flash fiction:
It’s going to be published by Hazardous Press.
I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s out. Should be a riveting collection of all things zombie related.
My piece is called “Coping Mechanisms” and features a Projectionist named Rose, and some settings familiar to my fellow Vancouverites.
I’m actually getting royalties! Ooooh, aaaaah! I’m excited. It will be out in print and ebook formats.
In the mean time, got to keep writing! Sure feels good to get an acceptance; really bolsters my spirits.
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for reading, following, commenting, and linking: your support is really helping me get my career off the ground. I hope to string you along on a lifetime of exciting work!
YOU GUYS LOOK
LOOK AT THIS.
I am so excited right now. Words… cannot express…
Look under the title there… Soooooo gooooooood!
