Had a great email this morning. My Q1 rejected story "A Little Slice Of Heaven" sold to the webzine "Mindflights." The story should appear some time in the next three months.

In other news, I guess I have to start submitting more stories to markets that won't have me. I'm a Duotrope outlier! wotf001
Q4 2011 - Honorable Mention - "Ascent"

Short fiction sales to Mindflights (x2), Twisted Dreams Magazine, Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine

Let me guess: the trick is to write really small?

Or use both sides?
Oh dear. I need a signature.
And an avatar.
And probably other things I don't even know about.

They say when you go in to "pitch" a movie idea, you've got to get it all into a one or two sentence logline?

So. SyFy loved your last thing ... Sharktopus,Octashark,
whatever the hell it was. What've you got for me next?

The Writer leans forward and stares at FatCat Producer through the haze of cigar smoke ... into his own reflection in FatCat's sunglasses.

Yes to both! Being a detail person, I found that harder than writing the novel (took me about as long, too.)
