A Good Start To The Year

It sure has been a long time since I updated this site. I would say it’s always been in the back of my mind to write here consistently, but really, that’s just lying to everyone including myself.

But it is a new year, and I guess I can make this my resolution if only because I no longer have much to do in my day-to-day life.

2015 ended with, well, endings. I finished my BFA degree and stopped working at the casino. Now I am free to become a full time writer and all the cash that it does or does not bring in.

So far, I have received good news about two of my stories. The first was bittersweet. My story “The Fourth Hill” was technically accepted by Asimov’s Science Fiction, but because they would be unable to publish it until about October 2017, the editor recommended I shop it around a little bit. If no one bites, I can retry in a year.

The second bit of good news is that Triptych Tales has decided to include my story “Right Here Under Her Wing” in an anthology. I had actually completely forgotten that I had submitted the story, so the email was an extremely pleasant surprise.

So, I have one real sale and one ‘pending’ sale. And it’s not even February.

Here’s to 2016. Let’s hope the sales keep coming.
