I'm pleased to report my third acceptance from Flame Tree, this time for their forthcoming 'Cosy Crime' anthology. These are beautiful hardbacks and good people to deal with. They've just given advance warning of another two calls, so keeps your eyes open, guys.

Great story, Sataris. Vivid, poignant and incredibly creative. Can see why it won a silver!

I'm happy to announce I have a fun story in a fun anthology that just came out last week: The Church of Raw in Thuggish Itch: Scientific. The story was a quirky early WOTF rejection that I still really liked, but was a poor fit for most markets, so I've been shopping it around for a couple of years. This was its 25th submission, so I'm happy to have finally found it a good home!

After numerous attempts, I finally placed a story in DSF! It's the first pro market I've been published in, so I'm pretty pumped.
