Tonight I’m eyeball deep in issue #134. Tomorrow I upload the magazine. I’m having a hard time coming up with witty banter at the moment, so here’s something shiny.
My story “Sticky Rice” was accepted for When the Sirens Have Faded. I have a bunch of drabbles accepted for the Guilty Pleasures anthology. Mine all feature a serial killer, so I named it my “Serial Series.”
Trickster’s Treats III, an anthology that raises money for charity: water, is now available for pre-order here. charity: water is an international non-for-profit organisation you can read about here. The story I contributed is called “Soft Deadline” about a tired incubus.
Oh, and I won Poetry Nook’s 247th weekly poetry contest. The poem was called “Butterflies Lie Hay(na)ku Chain” and you can read it here. If you’re a poet, I highly recommend the entire Poetry Nook site, and their weekly poetry contest is the best.
My youngest son, Quinn Cato entered last week with a brilliant poem titled “Old Stellar.” You can read that here. I could be biased, but I think it’s excellent. You can check out this week’s contest—and enter—here. Of course, I had to toss his poem up on a quick image.
I’ve run out of keys to jingle… so I’ll just back away slowly…
