The above clip is from another anthology acceptance I garnered…from the same person compiling my “monster” story.  I cannot say much yet, but I will let you see a couple images below.  More to come…

Another Anthology Acceptance

Monster Anthology clipping

Above is a clip from the upcoming anthology I have been accepted into.  I am pretty thrilled about it; so I had to share the news.

This is the second acceptance I’ve had this year.  The estimated release is December or January (I think).  I shall give more details closer to the actual release date…such as what the anthology is about and how to get a look at it.

I’m unsure if it will be strictly digital or if a physical edition is in the works as well.  I’ll share what I know when I know it.

another submission off

submission

Two short stories have been sent off  – and I have no clue what the actual reception of them will be.  I happened across some information about some anthologies looking for submissions.  I queried someone, and got a positive response…asking me to submit my stories.

I don’t know a whole lot, but I figured it can’t hurt to post some news that someone is interested about something I wrote.   When I learn more, I promise to share – including which stories…if used.

Submission = Book to Come?

Some quick news…

I finished and submitted a short story for something scheduled to be released (hopefully) by the end of the year.  Here’s what I know I can reveal…  I had to write the story based off an introduction given to me; which was less than a few hundred words.  My job was to write what happens next.

With no idea how everything is intended to come together to become a full-length publication, I did get this response…

I’m definitely including your work in the book so no worries there. I’m hoping for a late Dec or early Jan release. I’ll keep you posted as things progress further. Thank you for your participation and great contribution towards this book, it is much appreciated.

When things get closer, or more decided, I’ll share the details…same as the title.  I did make the cover myself – for no particular reason.  Here’s a look at the original concept for the cover:

More to come, hopefully…

Am I Supposed to be Writing..?

Nanowrimo 2014 will be engulfing me soon enough.  I haven’t set eyes on my notes since December of 2013 but I have faith the scribblings are in one of the two writing boxes I have at hand.

For people wondering what I’ll write…the image above is a vague idea.  If anyone read my book from last year and wanted more; I’m still quite inclined work on the continuation.  I won’t call it a sequel, but I still look at the endeavor as a complete book.

The image came about when I was lightly dared to draw in unison with another person.  The sketch was done on a small sheet of notebook paper.  I gave it a little pizazz via some image manipulation.   Here’s what it started as…

This is a hopeful sign I am easing back into the blog.  Like the Pere Ubu track; Something’s gotta give…

Abject Abeyance

holdpattern

ab·ject

adjective \ˈab-ˌjekt\

: extremely bad or severe

1 :  sunk to or existing in a low state or condition 

2 a:  cast down in spirit :  servile, spiritless

   b:  showing hopelessness or resignation 
The title sums up the moment.  High points eclipsed by other moments.  I hope the next post will be more positive.  Where I’ll be; or what I will be doing at that point is not something I can foresee.
Currently I’m in a holding pattern.  Hopefully the stick pulls back and I can gain enough altitude to appear as I was flying six months ago — or even two.
Giving any further details feels trivial at this time.
For anyone out there supporting my writing, or me as who I am, I am much appreciative.  As always, and as B&J, I thank you for your support.

Doing my best to Camp

Camp Nano 2014 banner: Mesnard

I am participating in Camp once again.  Part of me wonders if I have a choice…and the other side tells me I need a deadline to be productive.  Despite how it looks, I am still pursuing my lofty (if not mysterious and farcical) Road to Glory campaign.

I have it easier this year than last.  I should have no excuse…once I finally get my notes down to “jump the gap” – as I have told people.  I have the end sketched fairly well, and I have most of the script written…but there is a small bit which still needs to be filled; to link both parts.

Taking the opportunity to procrastinate again post, I also slightly modified the sidebar.  Life has kept me busy enough not to even update my 2013 progress nor what I have in store for 2014.  Maybe I’ll  get to it as part of my Camp Nano victory lap…should I reach it.

On the bright side, much of my “spare” time went into a writing project.  I am on hiatus at the moment: which puts me at a seemingly-perfect point to continue my Script Frenzy tribute project from last year.
