Progress for Dark Realm-4
A couple of announcements, first.
I made two sales recently. The first was for a little short story called “The Hired Hand” that I wrote for a lesbian cowboy collection for Cleis coming out next June. Cleis is an erotica imprint, and I love their collections. So I was thrilled to be included even if the payday is less than thrilling. I’m a full-time writer, but I do still like to write stories for the sheer challenge. Okay, so maybe it’s not quite a sale yet. The editor wants the story, but I have to wait to see if the publisher wants it. I’m hoping that just means the approval is a formality.
The second announcement is that a story I submitted last week to Samhain, that today remains untitled because I can’t make up my damned mind, sold! It’s about two cowboys who rescue a woman from a storm and get it on. Huh! Didn’t know I could describe a story is so few words. And tentatively, it’s set to come out in March 2009.
So, after taking the first three days of December to take care of other bizness, I’m back at the main job. Pounding pages. Mostly on the Dark Realm story, but I’m playing with a cowboy story on the side too. Something to do with a bull and a girl’s underwear. Do me a favor and send me some notes of encouragement or some jokes. I know I’ll be ready for both.
