April Writing News

I’ve received an acceptance on another story of mine, “Across the Fourth Sea,” from an utterly awesome semi-pro zine — but I’m going to wait until I get the contract signed and returned to discuss which one in public. Superstition, you know. Kenina hora and all that.  Suffice it to say, for now:  I couldn’t be more excited about this news!

The story is a secondary world fantasy.  It’s my first attempt at this subgenre in a fully invented world (as opposed to one based in historical fact).  It’s one of my longer pieces to date as well, just under 10,000 words.  I don’t want to spoil the read so  I’ll just say that it explores a particular aspect of father-son relationships — and by extension any similar parent-child dynamic — against a backdrop of adventure and magic.

I also learned recently that the current go-live date for my story at Mad Scientist Journal is April 29, 2013.

Don’t worry, I’ll remind you when the date arrives. Heh.
