Good News!

Part two of the WotF workshop overview will be up next week. This week I wanted to crow a little, if you’ll indulge me. First off, I sold a story to Mike Resnick over at Galaxy’s Edge after a minor (but really needed) rewrite.  I’m super excited about this, as it’s my fourth professional-rate sale.Continue reading “Good News!”

Duotrope meets Submitomancy meets the Submissions Grinder

The story I sold was also my Q4 WotF finalist, entitled: SojournContinue reading “Story Sold!”

Absolute Visions, the anthology in which my first published illustration appears, is now available for purchase! If you’d like to see my full illustration (I haven’t seen it yet, but what appears in the anthology is probably a cropped version) youContinue reading “Absolute Visions Anthology”
