I am incredibly pleased to announce that the story I co-wrote with Jo (whose full name is Jonathan) has been sold to the very anthology we originally wrote it for. Sea and Sky will be included in the Masked Mosaic anthology from Tyche Books, edited by Camille Alexa and Claude Lalumière.
If you follow this blog regularly, you may be scratching your head a little bit. Back when I first blogged about this story in an entry I called …and Then the Magic Happened I said the editors had passed on the piece and I was sending it elsewhere. They did, and I did. But then even more magic happened. They changed their mind.
Oh my God, right? That like, never happens. But it did!
I love Every Day Poets. I truly do, not least of all because they work magic. Seriously. They publish a new poem every day. Every. Day. And what’s more they supply incredibly helpful feedback with every submission.
I might also love them because they’ve recently accepted my poem, Sort of Like a Cat, for publication in October 😉 Yay!
Yay! Three of my poems will be included in future issues of the awesome twitterzine Seven by Twenty. My poems Lost Miners, Lovers and Change is Good will all be published on their twitter feed over the next few months.
Lovers and Change is Good are reprints, but Lost Miners is a new poem I wrote as part of my April Poem-a-Day challenge. I’ll be sure and share the news as each one is featured.
My poem, Lizabeth, which I wrote as a part of the April Poem-a-Day challenge, will be published in a future issue of The Glass Coin. I’m very pleased that it found a home and am looking forward to sharing it with you all.
About a week ago I posted one of those vague tweets that drive everyone (including me) crazy. In my defense, I had just received some super awesome news but I didn’t have my contract in hand so I was scared of jinxing it. Now, however, it’s pretty official so I can share.
I’m excited to announce that my poem, “Character”, will be included in the October issue of The Scareald, a relatively new horror magazine. I’m especially pleased because it’s a print magazine and I really love having physical contributor copies to put on my shelf. Whoot!
I’m pleased to announce that my poem “Broken” will be included in the next issue of Trembles Magazine. “Broken” was written as a part of my (still ongoing LoL) November poem-a-day challenge from 2011 and I’m so very pleased that it has found a home at Trembles.
I’m incredibly pleased to announce that I’ve sold my short story “Crimes Against Humanity” to The WiFiles. “Crimes Against Humanity” is scheduled to be their very first story of 2013 and go live on January 6, 2013.
The Publishing Editor, Jay said of my submission, “I’m a sucker for a good zombie tale, especially when humanity is at the forefront of the tale (as opposed to schlock gore) so this could have been written for my personal taste.” which made me all happy-glowy. Yay!
Interestingly, three out of my four last sales were all zombie-related works. If I’m not careful I may end up typecast as a zombie writer LOL I love zombies, but they aren’t all I write about, honest 😉
My zombie munchkin story (oh yes, you did read that right), “…Oh My!” has found a home with Kzine and I couldn’t be happier. The release date hasn’t been set yet, but you can bet I’ll tell you all about it as soon as it is.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ve sold my poem, Damage, to Bete Noire. The contract is currently winging its way toward them courtesy of Canada Post, and the poem is scheduled to appear in their January 2013 issue.
