So, I just received word that another one of my stories will be published in Stupefying Stories sometime in the next year or so. Yay! I’ll let you all know when the actual issue is released. The story is another one set in Alandar, this time in the bustling, dusty city of Eddon at the western edge of civilization.
Furthermore, my novel The Rubric of All Things is a Quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. Go and download the excerpt and read/review it here. Good reviews help my chances of advancing, and there’s only a week or two left in this round, so hurry!
Elsewhere, I’ve got a bunch of stories under consideration at a bunch of different magazines, so fingers crossed there. I’ve got one story in process, and I swear I’ll have time to finish it someday soon. Not to mention those novels I’ve got waiting to go. And those other stories in need of finishing. Gah! Best not to think about the stuff I want to do right now, and focus on what I’m actually doing. Though traffic has dropped off around here a bit of late, I appreciate the support I’ve had for my work from this little blog of mine, so thank you all.
Onward and upward! Back to the keyboard!
Check it out! It’s only available on e-book, but it’s cheap and full of great stuff, not the least of which is my own work.
Also, for those of you who care, the story is set in Alandar.
Short post today.
I just received an acceptance from Stupefying Stories for my short story, “Thief of Hearts.” Very excited about that!
Also, I’m a finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest for the second quarter of this year, which is hugely exciting given just how competitive and prestiguous that contest is. I don’t know if I won yet or not, but I’ve been walking around with my fingers crossed for weeks now. For the record, doing this is very uncomfortable.
In any event, things are looking up. I’ve more-or-less finished a submitable draft of a fantasy novel set in my Alandar world entitled The Oldest Trick and, in a fit of hubris, have already started writing the sequel because I love the storyline so damned much.
Anyway, back to writing. I need to get going on more projects, because more projects = more submissions and more submissions = more acceptances. It’s statistically inevitable, or so I tell myself. In any event, I’m not going away anytime soon.
Thanks to all of you who visit or read my blog. I hope one day to give you many opportunities to read my actual publications.
