Well dear readers, today I have much to share with you!
Zombies Galore is live, and my piece “Monday Matinee Madness” opens and sets the tone for the collection. You can actually read my contribution in its entirety for free! Just “Look Inside”, and because mine is the opening story, you can check it out, which I’m quite pleased about. 🙂
Now onto the latest from my Mathematical Husband, who is persisting on creating these mesmerizing and oddly satisfying pieces of art with his laser cut Wild Gears. This video shows him using a gear-in-a-gear-*in-a-gear*. Pretty impressive.
And now for another thing you can check out. Forgotten is my strange little audo project which I’m going to keep calling an Oddcast. I’ve just put up episode 5 for you, and it’s called “Choices”. We’re getting better at this.
I’ll leave it at that. Thanks for stopping by.
Hello wonderful readers!
It has been a lovely summer. Still waiting on queries to trickle back to me. I sent out a few snail mail queries to some really stellar agents. I imagine the volume of queries an agent receives is far less if they ONLY accept snail mail queries. Maybe I will be one of dozens instead of one of hundreds!
On to GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!
I have a story appearing in a zombie anthology- Zombies Galore will feature my story, “Monday Matinee Madness” as well as many others which are sure to add up to one horrific anthology of the undead!
The cover art, by Stephen Cooney.
It is edited by T.M. McLean, and some of the other stories to look forward to are:
There are some others as well! I am so glad that this anthology finally is going to print- it’s been quite a process. A big thanks to Theresa Derwin for getting it back off the ground!
In other news, that audio-project I mentioned earlier is starting to take shape. Several episodes are recorded, and now I’m working on mixing them. Soon my pretties, soon. I can’t wait to share them with you (you’ll see them here first of course, my dear, dear readers).
As always, 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.
