There! I updated my webpage with the ordering information for Immunity to Strange Tales. I had the publisher link all along, but it is also available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Kobo, Google Play, Indigo, W.H.Smith UK, Waterstones UK, and Your Local Book Seller, so thought it was important to have the links in my website. Done!
Just got home from the Calgary Public Library’s writers’ conference (which was, as always, fabulous) and learned that I sold a story to The Urban Green Man anthology coming out this summer from Edge Press! I’m pumped! My first sale for 2013!
Now, this is cool. I was invited by editor Naomi Lewis to do a book review for Alberta Views Magazine! The book is right up my alley: a YA fantasy. I have to say, I really enjoyed the book, though it had some flaws. This made it easy to give a balanced view, because there was lots I really loved about it, but some things to critique as well.
Woot! I sold “Digging Deeper” to Hayden’s anthology through Bundoran Press, Blood and Water! My first sale of the year!
I won a contest! My novella, “Lucy,” and a story by Robert Walton, were selected by a stellar group of judges–Robert Silverberg, David Drake and Barry Malzberg. The prize is $1000 and online publication–I’m breathless!

This is my third sale this year! WOOt! I sold “Leal”–though the title has been changed to “To Go Home To Leal.” It sold to Beneath Ceaseless Skies, an online magazine–at professional rates. Don’t know yet when is coming out…
What a thrill! Stan didn’t want too much in the way of edits, either–just a few additional dialog tags on the first page and something other than “camera flash” on page 9. Did the changes and he got right back to me saying they were fine! My first novelette (10,200 words)! So, my second sale for 2011!

My fourth story to a Top Three publication! The story is called, “Turning It Off,” and it is a humorous piece about teenagers who learn how to turn off the private shields everyone wears to protect them from bumps and scrapes. With, of course, unintended results.

He made a podcast of our interview, which came up as a result of his review of my story, “Orange,” published in AE Science Fiction Review. You can hear the interview, here.
I just found out yesterday, I sold “Orange” to AE Science Fiction Review, a new, Canadian professional market. What a thrill!
