Reading, Sunday Update, Updates

Good news

The poem I submitted last week has been accepted and will be featured in an anthology coming out in a month or so. I will put more details up when the publisher has finalised everything. It should also have a free ebook copy, so you can read my work too.

This week has been so busy. I completed two longer short story submissions. Admittedly one of those stories still needs final polishing and submitting tomorrow but I still count it as an achievement. I should hear about the first short story in a few days.

I’ve also been reading more this week. Mainly Thomas Ligotti on my lunch breaks (reviews on Twitter) and marketing/business manuals by the Creative Penn. I’ve started to plan out what books I want to write and release over the next few years. I’m quite excited by all the possibilities.

Sunday Update

Schedules, StokerCon & Submissions

Life has been really busy this week. It’s mainly been really good; a combination of being back at the day job, family celebrations and creative bustling. But it has made me realise that if I want to actually have time to write anything, then updates, blog posts and non-urgent emails are going to have to wait till Sunday. Thus, I will be updating my Facebook page and website blog every Sunday with all my writing news for the week.

Big news for this week is that my story, ‘Feed your Demon’, can be found along with some amazingly masterful horror in Darkness Reclaimed by Eerie River Publishing. And what is better is that the book if FREE! Join the Eerie River newsletter, get a free horror anthology. I was really happy to contribute to this.

Another bit of exciting news is that I am going to StokerCon. It is the Horror Writers Association yearly convention. This year it is being held on the English coast and thus I am attending. It is really exciting for me as so many incredible authors will be there, including some of my favourites. I am currently using the attendee list to add books to my reading list. The talks and scheduled events already up on the website look fascinating and I honestly can’t wait.

Lastly, I am still writing. Got two things out for consideration currently. I have updated my calendar with all the opportunities I want to submit work and plan to start a new story tonight.

So, that’s it for this week, now I just need to see if I have the correct offerings to summon my muse…
