My flash fiction story, Swapped, has been accepted for issue #7 of Mississippi Crow. Swapped is one of my favorite pieces of flash and I can’t wait to be able to link to it and show it off 🙂
My drabble, Sex on the Beach has been published at Shine today. This is my third time and fourth piece featured in Shine and I encourage everyone to go take a look. Also, a good friend of mine, BD Wilson has a kick-ass story in Shine this month as well — read that too, you’ll thank me later. Really.
I apologize for the site being down briefly this afternoon, I was upgrading the blog script and then playing around with new layouts. Unfortunately, none of the layouts I liked would accommodate my ‘Pages’ links, and, frankly, I’m too lazy to try and figure out how to incorporate them — for today anyway.
Okay, back to writing.
My flash piece, Not So Smart, has been accepted for Issue #12 at The Flask Review. Yay.
“Not So Smart” is a story that was inspired by a Word of the Week prompt at NaNoLJers. Again, I find myself surprised by the high proportion of WotW stories I’ve written that have found homes in markets, surprised, but happily. I think I’ll take this as a cue to write some more WotW stories, now all I need to do is fine some “spare” time before November arrives and brings NaNoWriMo with it.
I’ll post a link to the story once it’s published 🙂
Barfing Frog Press — how could I not submit something to an ezine called ‘Barfing Frog Press’? I sent them a piece I wrote three years ago, before we bought our house. Unfortunately, it’s based on a true story — sorta 😉 You’ll have to read it in order to see what I’m talking about.
This week is starting off with a bang — I’ve got reams of good news. First of all, my poem, Cock-a-roach has been accepted and in fact, published at Poets Against War. That’s hardly a ream all by itself though is it? Nope 🙂
My drabble, “Sex on the Beach” has been accepted at SHINE! and should be published in October -and- my short story, “This Year’s Toy” has been accepted for the next issue of DiddleDog (and is online now).
Lastly, my short story, “Absinthe Eyes” has been accepted for publication at UR-Paranormal in the very near future.
That, surely, counts as reams of good news, don’t you think? 🙂
I just got home from a wonderful vacation to find a contributor’s copy of the latest IdeaGems publication waiting in my mailbox. My drabble, Fatherhood, was reprinted in it this month. This marks the third time that particular story has been published, so I think I’m going to stop submitting it for a while. I really like it, but I think it’s time some of my other stories got a chance to shine. 😉
Two of my poems, “Ms. Chong’s Room”, which is a rhyming poem aimed at kids in grade two, and “Lazy” a fluffy rictameter that originated in my Poo-a-Tree book, have been published by La Fenetre magazine. They issue went live at midnight EST.
Oh! I almost forgot, my haiku titled Sandcastle #5 has been published at Static Movement. You can check it out here, in fact, please do, I’m rather proud of it 🙂
