You wait forever for one bus...
And then two come along at once!
This is an emergency bulletin as in the past week not just one but two magazines have accepted my short stories. For money! Some people out there have liked my stories so much that they're willing to reach into their pockets and give me some of their own hard-earned cash. Fantastic! Money, if anything, is a good way of keeping score of where you're at as a writer (and buying meals at GBK) and I've been told at work that being paid money now puts me under the label of 'professional writer'. This does give me a warm, glowing feeling.
So at the end of this month, (30th November) if all goes to plan, you will be able to find my short story Kids in the latest issue of Electric Spec. Hurray!
In late 2011 my short story The Old Factory Award will appear in Abyss and Apex Magazine. Hurray again!
And to remind you all that No Longer Living can be found on Tales of the Zombie War, which is also great.
Anyway, I really should get back to writing.
