It's Here!

Just got my copy of FLASH! in the mail -- cool.

Thanks to Chris Bartholemew at Static Movement for making this book a reality.

My stories, "Something Different" and "A Dream of Peonies" are between the covers, along with a huge amount of fantastic flash.

In fact, a quick trip through the TOC shows that many of you out there, that follow this blog, are also represented within this kick-ass anthology, so this is a great big Congrats to all of you.  I can't wait to read your stories.

In the past couple of weeks, I've also received my copies of "Haunted" from PHP, and loved every story in it, and the proof copy of my short story collection, which, upon review, needs one more sharp scalpel edit before it's ready for prime-time.

Keep writing / keep reading!

Quick Update - Some Acceptances


Static Movement has really hit the ground running on the anthologies.  They've listed an additional 13 new anthologies in addition to the ones originally picked up when LGP had its little meltdown.  Check out what's on here. and here.  Most are open to reprints - so there's no reason not to get cracking and get something in for these!

I've gotten just a wee bit more mileage out of my story, "Kittens for Sale", which has been picked up for the "Ghosts and Demons" Antho..

Different publisher, same result - Wicked East Press has accepted my story, "Induction Week" for their "Cup of Joe" anthology.  (Also still accepting subs!)

It's great to see these stories getting a little extra exposure, as I quite like how they turned out and love that they'll be in print now.

I just got my copy of "Haunted" this week. It's a stunning book.  If you've got the spare ducats - it's a great collection (so far -- I'm halfway through reading the rest of it)

Keep writing. Keep reading.

Zombie Summer - Fun in the Sun

Just realized how much "Zombie" I've got going on right now.

First was my half-assed not-quite-entry for "Zombie-Luv" (Previous Post), but I've also got a longer piece in the works that I've been doing as my "can't think about the bloody novel today" story, that's aimed at a specific antho, and THAT's got zombies in it.

And today at Flashes in the Dark - "Fun in the Sun", my entry for their "Resurrection Contest". (click to read)

Zombies. Zombies. Zombies.

Grahh.
