But the BIG news is that I've had 20 acceptances on my year, including a novel, book 2 of the Pack Dynamics series, coming soon to an Amazon page near you! That was a career bingo square that started coming down to the wire. Now, to be fair, one of those acceptances has been rescinded because the publication canceled the issue *cries*, but they still accepted it in the first place, so I'm counting it. :p
The 20th acceptance was for my story "Rebirth" for the Mars antho, solicited by Jon Del Arroz. The prompt: Mars is a hobo in NYC. Well, I took that and ran it right into the Wall of Wrong, as I tend to do. I don't THINK I'm going to Hell for writing it, but I guess I'll find out in due time.
So far, it's been a pretty good year! Never Give Up, Never Surrender.
