Do they just accept anything then?


I've just been informed that they DO accept anything from anyone....except from anyone whose name begins with the letter 'V'.

Very strange..........

The bad news is that I only managed about 7,000 words of fiction this month, which is less than I'd planned.

However, it's somewhat extenuating, as I wrote 50,000 words of paid non-fiction in the same time and something had to give.

My biggest success metric applies to the paid work and is called "Breakfast."

If I work, I get paid, so I eat.

I just realized one of my goals of having a prose poem accepted by S.T. Joshi just came true.

Now, onward to other markets.

Working toward a goal of finishing a novel this year, so far I have eight chapters outlined for "The Perishers".

So far, so good.

April is the cruelest month. I have some serious catching up to do, but I aim to hit the middle-point of a novel toward the end of May. Good luck all.

That may be because my birthday is in April

I've not had a bad month. I didn't do as much writing as I'd like, but I have an audiobook in the review stage, and I've just accepted an offer for one of my books to be translated into Italian.

Third, I have two longer short stories moving along. Both are more or less conventional science fiction, and both are about two thirds done.
Okay, one of the two longer short stories (5000 words -- by far the longest piece I've ever written) has reached the "completed first draft" stage. I've set it aside to rest, but hope to have it all polished and shiny within a couple of months.

The other has had some serious rewrites, but it's about three fourths done. It should also come out to about 5000 words or so.

And add to that another short. The beginning and end came pretty easily, but I have no idea how I'm going to connect them.

I got an email this morning informing me that the audio book of A Damn Close-Run Thing is now available. This wasn't on my list of goals, mainly because ACX wasn't open to UK authors at the start of the year, and I couldn't afford to pay a narrator, but they started accepting UK authors last month.

The same book is in the process of being translated into Italian and Spanish

Just finished the first complete draft of Doc Vandal: Against the Eldest Flame. Now a few tweaks and I can look for feedback.
