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

Bye bye January blues

This week I got a rejection. I am not too surprised as the story was a bit strange for the brief but rejection always knocks me a bit. On the bright side however, I now have a completed story. Which is an achievement at the moment as January has completely kicked my butt. But February is Women in Horror Month so I am hoping my fortunes change.

I did however, finally get on Twitter. I am just following interesting people and blogging about the short stories I read on my lunch breaks atm. I need to do a bit more research on the whole hashtag and etiquette thing as I have no idea how twitter works 😛 .

I did get to binge October Faction on Netflix though. I loved it. From the monsters to the diversity & representation to the amazing twists, it was all really enjoyable.
