After so many years focusing my efforts on longer works, I recently took a stab at writing some flash fiction. I'm pleased to announce two of my speculative fiction stories have been acquired for publication.
First, my piece Elective Pilistasis appeared on the Splickety Publishing Group blog in July. You can read it now for free.
Second, my piece Immolation Puppy will appear in the January issue of Havok magazine. Copies will be available in print as well as digitally. I'll post links when the issue is out, or you can go ahead and subscribe to Havok.
I've been having fun with the novellas. Tessili Academy and Tessili Rogue are now done. Tessili Revenge is halfway there. I also finished a 12,000 word short story set in the Tessili world I intend to submit to Tor, and an itty bitty flash fiction piece about a superhero I intend to submit to Havok. Stefani has been busy too. A Man Who Starts is written. All it needs is editing and formatting, then publication.
Which means I have a lot of work in the "almost done" state. Again. On the one hand, I feel like I've done a pretty good job so far in 2015. Then on the other hand I look and the calendar and think, "April already? How? What? When? I have so much to do."
However, my short list of goals is attainable, I think. Here's what I plan to have done by the end of the year:
I'm also making a small effort to revitalize my presence on the internet. So far that's not going so well. I have a really hard time staying interesting in social media. I guess we'll see if I can stick with it this time.
