When I get more solid dates on the to be confirmeds, I’ll announce them.


I’ve still got 15 stories left to hear back from the January Submission Challenge. There are also still 4 stories outstanding from the original September Challenge! I’ve earmarked May for the next Submission Challenge, plenty of participants reported sales and that makes me really happy.

Unless another call goes out & I get accepted, I won’t be involved in Jouth Volume 2. Frankly, I think it’s currently dead in the water & I have listed my stories as withdrawn.
Tuck & Roll in Automobilia is still on-going.
Fillers won’t be appearing in Again, Hazardous Imaginings. I was asked to do a full rewrite which I wasn’t prepared to do, especially after being told “yours is the best thus far and the most fitting for the anthology’s theme.”

    Yay! Great up date. I hope to make the challenge in May. I didn’t send anything out in January. It was terrible.
