So, when are the results due? It's been a while since I entered and I'm a tad out of touch.

Probably not until September or October.

Re: Five Minute Rant

I can't think of where to put this, so here goes. I submitted to Infinite Worlds recently(little less than a month), I mistakenly thought they respond within two weeks. The reality is that more than half don't get responded to. They say this outright, that they don't know when or if they will respo...

Time to change mine, but don't want to end up with the little x in the upper left circa Netscape 1.0.

Nothing yet, but I just got a bunch of random emails that made my heart flip-flop. You'd think I'd be used to this by now...

Re: Success!

My story, "Lavender Footsteps," was picked up for an acted out audiobook podcast that's starting up next month! It's a paying gig, which is kind of crazy, but they're also still looking for new short stories in the 6,000-9,000 word range, so I figured I'd post the link (it's a tweet with a...

Re: Success!

Congrats! Make sure you share it with us when it's out / out for pre-order! Thanks Andy! It's a little outside the realm of this board, but it is 'speculative' in a way. The anthology's theme is team-ups of Western historical characters who never actually met. We had to keep it realistic as to thei...

Another of my serial-HMs for WoTF has sold!

Project Lifeline will be in The Colored Lens' Winter 2020 issue (which I think is *this* winter, not next winter). It's a love story hidden in a somewhat deep dive sci-fi and I'm so happy it's found a home. wotf007

Not the usual success story, but, uh, I finished writing another novel today. Perfect timing since I didn't really want to write a bunch over the holiday. On to editing next week!
