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 🙂

Poetry Accepted @ La Fenetre

I’ve had two poems accepted at La Fenetre 🙂  The first is a rictameter called “Lazy” that I wrote one morning chastising myself (bet you can guess what for LoL).

The second poem, “Ms. Chong’s Room” is a poem for kids (complete with rhymes) about a teacher named Ms. Chong.  My daughter’s grade two teacher was named Ms. Chong, I helped out two mornings a week in her classroom all last year, and this year, though my daughter is in grade three I still help out in Ms. Chong’s room two mornings a week.  Is the title of a poem a coincidence?  I think not 😉

The Doll

Another piece of flash fiction a’la moi has found somewhere to call home.  “The Doll” is a very short, but powerful, story that is due to make an appearance in Burst Literary Ezine this fall.  Yay!  You’re going to love this one — honest.  I wish I could offer a sneak peek but for somewhat obvious reasons that’s not going to happen 🙂

Bondage Whore

My BDSM sonnet, Bondage Whore, has been published at Oysters & Chocolate 🙂  I’m really quite impressed with Oysters & Chocolate and hope to see more of my work there in the future…of course, that means I need to submit more LOL In the meantime, please check out the poem IF you are over 18 and IF you’re not easily offended.

A Nice Surprise

When I popped over to SHINE today to check out my poem, Sandcastle #5 that was due to be published there yesterday I got an interesting surprise.  Not only was my poem published, but my WMD drabble was as well.  I knew I’d submitted it but according to my records I was still waiting for a response.  As far as surprises go, that’s a good one 🙂

So yeah, check out my haiku, Sandcastle #5 and my WMD drabble at SHINE 🙂

I write, I edit and I take a lot of naps.
