My short story “Heartstrings” will be appearing in the upcoming “Triangulation” anthology for Parsec Ink. Will add more when I know it, and will obviously promote the heck out of it. Hooray!
Cosmic Roots And Eldritch Shores decided against this story, but with a very helpful note as to why. I’ll take their comments on board.
Feels like ages since I’ve updated this with anything other than a litany of negativity, so here’s something more cheerful: publication!
In the last month I’ve been published (or found out I’m being published in three different places:
My story “T-Minus” is part of the “Reading 5×5” anthology, now available from Metaphorosis Books. This is a wonderful experiment to take 5 story pitches and write 5 different stories from each of them. Mine was in the “Hard sci-fi” category, and I ended up with something I’m genuinely pleased with. You can buy a copy for yourself here: http://x1.reading5x5.com/
I’ve just had a microfiction published by 101 Words. “Matrimonial Bonds” can be viewed here: https://101words.org/matrimonial-bonds/
And finally, my story “Angels At The Border”, previously published by Metaphorosis, has been selected for the anthology “Best Vegan Science Fiction & Fantasy 2017”. I’m not vegan, but I like the idea of celebrating science fiction and fantasy that doesn’t contain the exploitation of animals, so I’m delighted to be included. I’ll be sure to gush about it when it goes on sale.
101words didn’t want this either.
Quick rejection from The Colored Lens.
I may park this one for the time being, I’ve sent it to nine places and had nine rejections, so maybe it’s just not as good as I thought it was?
Factor Four passed on this very quickly. It might not be their thing, or it might be I have unrealistic expectations about where this story can land.
Shimmer passed on this one too. May take a bit of time this evening and re-evaluate it.
