Fatherhood Shines Again

My drabble, Fatherhood, has been scheduled to make an appearance in the summer issue of IdeaGems.  I will, of course, post a link to it once it’s up and running, but if you just can’t wait you could always check it out from the links to the left 😉

In other news my short story, Sheltered, was published by Purpose and I received my contributors copies the other day.  As much as I love being published online, and most of my publishing credits are online ones, there is something very satisfying about seeing your name in physical print — in a publication you can hold in your hands.

Sandcastle #5 Accepted

I know haiku aren’t supposed to have titles, but mine do — they need to or I’d have no chance of keeping track of them 🙂 Why am I telling you this? I guess I’m thinking about haiku a lot lately — I’ve written many in recent months and started submitting them to markets. It all started with Sandcastle #5. Wild Child Publishing accepted and published it, the first haiku I wrote since leaving high school. Happily, that isn’t the end of Sandcastle #5’s story — I just heard back from Static Movement and they’ve accepted it for their July issue.

Yay!

Hopefully I’ll have good news about some of my other haiku in the near future 🙂

Rant Published @ Poor Mojo’s Almanac(k)

My rant, “How To Save The World” was published at Poor Mojo’s today — that squid sure doesn’t waste any time 🙂  Once I get two more pieces accepted there I get a shirt — which I’m really looking forward to, even more than the occasional cheque that comes my way for mainstream writing.  I think it feeds the same part of my brain that loves collecting badges on Pogo or finishing quests on World of Warcraft 🙂
