crane_fly_halteresAnother slice of hot hooray today! My short story ‘Some of Them Make The Scare-Away Shape’ has been accepted for publication by the tumultuous people over at Phantom Drift.

It’s a rather charming story about a bunch of people and the big thing that they make and the resulting scrapes that this vague thing gets them into. *WOW* Who wouldn’t want to read that? Out soon!

Eleven brilliant Hoorays all round! Join me in half a frantic dance, for my short story ‘Boys They Bring Her Down to Break’ has appeared in the latest issue of L’Allure Des Mots.

Go have yourself a read, good Lord, it’s heavy on the hot side!

Warning though, NSFW.

It’ll be out soon. Keep those eyes peeled! Like an onion!

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!)
