My submissions are starting to pay off. This week I was accepted into the Trickster’s Treats III Halloween charity magazine. The theme was the seven deadly sins. I chose the “lust” category and wrote “Soft Deadline.” That should be out by Halloween. Proceeds go to fundraiser for charity: water. They even made a cool graphic for my announcement!
I also had a story accepted to When the Sirens Have Faded! My story “Sticky Rice” will be included. Those familiar with Bitter Suites might recognize a few characters, but it is a stand alone story.
I had two stories come out in the latest The Sirens Call eZine—“Nothing to Give” and “Flaming” appear beginning on page 6. You can download that free here or visit sirenscallpub.com for all kinds of free reading.
Finally, I am super happy to announce that my poem “Butterflies Lie Hay(na)ku Chain” won the 247th Weekly Poetry Contest at PoetryNook.com. I submit each week and I invite everyone to do the same. It’s an awesome site to promote poetry and share the craft. You can read “Butterflies Lie Hay(na)ku Chain” here.
So, busy week of triumphs for me over here. They will sustain me through the inevitable non-triumph weeks. I hope your week has been as successful however you define it.
