Additionally, a story of mine tied at 4th place with Shock Totem’s January Flash Fiction Contest–not bad considering the caliber of writers I was up against.
James Ward Kirk is not only an excellent editor, but a really fast publisher! Thanks to him, my stories En Masse, and Senhpi ez hrl Dmajld (winner of an editor’s choice award–thanks again, Mr. Kirk), are now available to read in his respected anthologies. Be sure to check it out.
In other great news, my story Transient Number Five just sold to Bete Noire Magazine. It is scheduled to be published in July, 2014.
My story Ornery Bear can now be “heard” at Bizzarocast. Be sure to check it out.
Keep an eye on some of my stories getting published over the next few months:
Dinner with Sasquatch, The Dead of Night, Ornery Bear, and Nothing but a Little Magic
Almost a year later and I have finished writing my first novel! Final edits, and then I go agent shopping. It’s a great feeling, and I’m excited to start my next novel, but even better than that, I’m going to write several more short stories! Yahoo!
Even though the almighty Bruce Lee might consider my excuse of being a “sucky blogger” as a simple cop-out, still, I make no apologies. And here’s why: Two kids, a full-time job as a special education teacher, and my companion of fifteen years–my wife–whom I still adore spending time with. Add on top of that my ONE hobby (the sacrifice one makes to be a family man) which is writing, and there is simply no time left in the day. So there you go. That is why I suck at blogging.
