Monthly Archives: December 2011

With the wet, blunt end of 2011 racing towards us as I type, it seems only fitting to look back on the past year and get a bit of persepctive on where I stand on the submissions front. In case you are wondering, since I thought November and December would be relatively quiet months I decided to forego November’s update (due on about December 3rd) and look at both months together at the end of the year. Also, laziness.

I had two goals to reach by Christmas 2011; to reach 100 stories written and 50 stories accepted for publication. I am happy to say I reached both targets, finishing my 101st story by Christmas morning and having my 54th story accepted for publication two weeks before Christmas. I am delighted, but that’s really just the first and easiest step, there is still plenty of work to do!

Scary, intimidating work.

Yowza! It’s another festively yule-tidinous story, rank with the cheer of this happy season! My short story Queer Hams Rising has sprouted over at Corium Magazine’s Winter 2011 issue. It’s the perfect tale to read aloud to loved ones at the dinner table, turning many a frown upside wrong!

Chee!

In an upcoming issue of Rose and Thorn Journal. The foxy coves have selected my short story I Am Your Special Dog for inclusion in their forthcoming Winter issue. It is a particularly charming story about a boy, his dog, and the larks they are prone to. The special larks.

In an upcoming issue of The Ear Hustler. They have selected my short story Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) a rather silly story about a magic house! It should be out at the end of the month.

Well, hellooo, my fine people! Well amn’t I delighted? My short story Queer Hams Rising hasĀ  been accepted for publication by Corium Magazine. It is a cheeky little story of soil and meat.

Cheers!
