    this is where you can come to share your good news - later when it goes live hit the promotion thread

    i have two short story collections that look like they're going to happen, but until i sign the contracts, i can't announce them yet - one leans horror, one leans neo-noir, with two different presses, one out this year and the other out early 2012 - i'm psyched

    nothing else has been accepted lately

    Sweet! Well done, Richard.

    A couple of weeks ago I had a third story accepted by Gargoyle Magazine called "Under Hindsight's Knife." It's about a girl asked to dissect her arch enemy from high school in a college Gross Anatomy class. Not a horror story, believe it or not.

    I had a story accepted to Borderlands 6. It's been years and they have not published yet. It was such an honor to be picked by them that I'll wait forever if I have too, but come on! Still... I got accepted by Tom and Elizabeth Monteleone--fricking rocks!!!

    Awesome. I have a story there right now, I've been talking to Richard Peabody over there, and I hope my story gets in. I'd be thrilled to be in there. Heck, maybe we'll be in the same issue, Nik.

    That'd be most excellent. Richard's awesome. He gave me my first break with my story "First Kisses from Beyond the Grave."

    I have so many stories up in the air right now, one is bound to land on the positive side, yes? [Crosses fingers] I think you need a certain amount of acceptances within your rejections or the entire world goes off balance.

    Not really an acceptance, but there is something so pleasing about selling a couple of books Amazon, and watching your rating go from 4.5 million to the top 10,000 for a few minutes LOL. Even if it is short-lived I still get all goosed up about it.

    I saw your name and thought that was you. Congratulations. I'm in here too, and they asked me to write a special introduction for it. Very cool. Glad to be in here with you. A couple other names I recognized too, some friends and peers, can't really talk about it yet, but it looks like a great issue. I'll be in Issue #7 as well, the following issue. Hard to write those little 50-word buggers, yeah?

    I had my story The Wings of a Fly over at Dark Discoveries for many months. Back in March I sent a query because they had closed their submissions. I got a quick response telling me that they were just about to get to my story and that I’d hear from them in the next week or so. I never did.

    When this competition came up, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Turns out I’m going to be published by CD so it was a good call. I sent an email to Dark Discoveries letting them know that since I hadn’t heard back from them, I assumed my story was not accepted and I let them know that it has been accepted elsewhere.

    I got a reply back immediately. As it turns out, my story was supposed to go to the “maybe” pile. They really like my writing. (very nice to hear) What happened was that instead of the notification being sent to me, it ended up going to their Administrator email. Basically, it fell through the cracks. The gist of it is that they want me to send something else and it won’t have to go to the bottom of the pile.

    Now I gotta put something together over the long weekend. I have an idea that I think will work. I certainly hope that I work well under pressure. This is a first for me.
