Congrats, Sammy!

Cast of Wonders was very quick about getting the first-ever podcast of one of my stories up on their site. Here is the podcast page (cool artwork!) and here is my blog post about the podcast itself.

Hey, some nice news here! After a major revision at the editors' request, I sold my story "Lacuna" to The Future Fire.

That's fantastic, congrats! My personal R from Asimov's is one of my proudest writerly moments; I can't imagine how good it must feel to have sold them 3 stories!

And though it's not a recent sale, my As Above, So Below story will be going live later tonight over here.

Congrats Lizardmaker (well done with the rewrite), and Michael Haynes (it would be fascinating to hear someone else read your own story).

Pan - congrats on the story going "live". I just started looking at the requirements and it's' pretty intense!

I seem to be the Twitter Fiction queen this week - another acceptance this time from Trapeze. I'll let you know as soon as I know the day.

They're pretty strict! It's a cool sounding anthology though and the editor asked me to submit something which is always a good sign. Very glad to be involved in it.

Congrats on all the twitfics as well!

Alice,

Congratulations! I remember reading and enjoying the first of the two stories when it was published at DSF.

Hope you have some more humor SF stories in you. I do have an anthology opening up soon

"Nuclear Family" is live today at Kasma SF. It's only 500 words, so you have no excuse not to go read it *right now*

Congrats, Alex and Allie!

My news: My first novel has been published! It's launch day for Ebenezer's Locker, my paranormal mystery for tweens. It's been released as an e-book by MuseItUp Publishing.

I'm having an online launch party on my blog, if you'd care to stop by and help me celebrate!
