Cat yawningIt is with a heavy dose of hot shame that I admit to neglecting this old website of mine over the past couple of months. Work on my play Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) dominated matters for a time but with the ending of its succesful and borderline-glorious run last week, I can turn my attention to how my lovely stories have been doing out in the Wild World. So what’s been published? What’s been accepted? Is there any other GREAT NEWS? Read on…

Brain_coralYes I have, so I have! My short story ‘The Garden Where We Go To Lump’ has appeared in the latest issue of Gone Lawn.

Please do go on over and enjoy this LAFF RIOT.

stone-in-handWell yipes and yazoo, this is good news! My short story ‘JAR’ has been plucked from the rushes by the delightful folk over at Mama Grande Press

It’s a particularly saucy and chortlesome jape about a young boy and a magical jar and the delightful things he finds inside.

It should be out for July; do look out for it– ‘Jar’ hear me?!

Ha ha ha ha ha,

waltzHurrah! Coinciding with my site’s second anniversary, my short story ‘The Big Soft Gentle Man’ has been published by the lovely people at Dark Edifice.

It’s a ‘fun’ story, go have a read!

fison-david_christmas-totem-poleYipe! My short story ‘OSKALOPL’ has been accepted for publication by the transcendant people at Hello Horror.

Very proud of this story, particularly since it was nonsense word I made up while I was in the shower.

It’s a silly tale (but aren’t they all?) about some silly boys (ditto) doing an awful thing (ditto, ditto, ditto) It’ll be out soon.

*Ace*

Kids-Jigsaw-PuzzleWell hurrah and halloo and fol-de-rol,  I am cock-a-hoop to announce my short story ‘The Look-Away Club’ has been accepted for publication by the beautiful people over at Corvus.

It’s a silly, whimsical tale about one magical summer, filled with friendship, larks, and one *very* special jigsaw!

It’ll be out next month!

time catI know, I know, this entry is a few days late. And I didn’t take a photograph this week either. So here’s one of the cat travelling through time to tide you over.

Another brief entry this, still in a festive, resty, mood. It’s been a good week. 2012 has shambled off and while it has been a good year on the whole, long and busy, I’ve felt the need for a new start and a new direction. The last couple of months of 2012 were a bit aimless and I was a bit down. (See previous entries for hilarious gloom) but I feel refreshed now and ready for new challenges and positive things like that.

In which Christmas occurs and not much gets done.

This is going to be a short one, naturally enough, and I’m writing this a full day early as my good friend Adam is coming to stay for a couple of days which promises to be almost too much fun. Anyway, Christmas is over and done with for another year and I have taken time off from submissions, have received no rejections, have tried instead to have a lovely relaxing time. And I have, for the most part. I am mildly ashamed of my pessimism in the last post in this series (go read for some mawkish whinging, if that is your thing) but I feel much better after getting it all out. As a good friend of mine used to say, it does you no good keeping it inside– get it out, walk around it, see how small it really is. Maybe she was talking about gallstones or something but I think it applies to this situation as well.

So I am in a much better place to attempt an honest next week’s end-of-year retrospective thingy which you won’t want to miss! (Feel free to miss it. I won’t mind! I won’t even know!) Anyway, with the understanding that I have done very little this week, let’s still ask– what have I done this week?
