I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this here already — I tend to try and keep things to myself until they are so official my paranoid little brain doesn’t need to worry about jinxing them, so I may not have 🙂 However, I got the contract today, so now I can brag 🙂
Abominations is a brand new anthology by Shroud Publishing. It includes “13 spine-tingling tales of murderous monsters” and one of those tales, is written by yours truly. That’s right. My short story, Spoiled Picnic, is included in this anthology which is now available for pre-ordering.
Am I proud?
Hell yes. How cool is that title? Abominations. *purrs* I love it. And the cover? To die for (though it does look better full-size than it does in my ‘shrunk-down’ version 🙂 ).
Yay me! 🙂
That’s not very professional-sounding is it? Hmm…well, still, yay me 🙂
Wheee! Yesterday I finished the first draft of my new novel, tentatively titled “Shadows”. I usually don’t let anyone see the first draft, but this time I’m changing things up a bit. I’m going to send it to my beta readers as is (well, minus all the comments I left for myself ie: “Check on the color of these curtains” or “Is she blonde?”) and then keep their feedback in mind when I revise…which won’t be for a least a month. I’ve found that letting my work age a bit before revising is definitely a good thing, and besides, I’m going to be busy with Writo de Mayo for all of May 🙂
It’s a good first draft, my best yet I think, so I’m very excited about it. Yay!
My flash piece, Ironic Angst, is now online at Every Day Fiction. Obviously, I like my story, but I also really enjoy the way Every Day Fiction works. If you like flash you ought to check it out. They put up a new story every day and you can rate and comment on them. If you stop by make sure you check out my story, then keep poking around — you’re sure to find something you like.
My poem, this girl, got published at Oysters and Chocolate today. Yay! I’m not actually into the whole Gorean scene, but that doesn’t mean I can’t write about it, right? 🙂 Oysters and Chocolate is not a kid or work-safe website. Make note before you click.
