I hope you're enjoying this lovely autumn weather. It's finally raining here in Portland and I'm so happy about it. Sweater-weather, here I come!
I've got some exciting news on the writing front: a flash fiction scifi story I wrote entitled "A Sub Mechanic's Panic" was accepted into the Queer SciFi anthology, published by Mischief Corner Books, and the anthology pubbed today!
Here's a bit about it:
A 300-word story should be easy, right? Many of our entrants say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever written. Queer Sci Fi's Annual Flash Fiction Contest challenges authors to write a complete LGBTQ speculative fiction micro-story on a specific theme. "Flight" leaves much for the authors to interpret—winged creatures, flight and space vehicles, or fleeing from dire circumstances. Some astonishing stories were submitted—from horrific, bloodcurdling pieces to sweet, contemplative ones—and all LGBTQ speculative fiction. The stories in this anthology include AI’s and angels, winged lions, and wayward aliens. Smart, snappy slice of life pieces written for entertainment or for social commentary. Join us for brief and often surprising trips into 110 speculative fiction authors’ minds. Get your copy today on Amazon, Kobo, and ARe. Coming soon to B&N, Smashwords, and Apple!
Pretty cool, right?
