Relativity Coming Soon

My 1200 word story Relativity was accepted by Escape Velocity: The Anthology some time ago, and I've now had word that it will see print next month. I originaly submitted it for the magazine, but the publishers decided to bring the magazine to an end after the 4th issue and produce an anthology. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

One Hundred Billion Dollars

One Hundred Billion Dollars is the title of a story, not the amount of money I've sold it for. It's a 1500 word story and has been accepted by Bards & Sages Quarterly. It has been slated for the July issue.

That's two sales in a weekend, which is a great result.

How Not to Submit Your Novel

I came across this mind-boggling post at the Zeno Literary Agency, wherein several unbelievable submission errors are detailed.

It reminded me of a comment made by a panelist at BristolCon last year, who said that if you manage to send in a query letter typed on white paper you're already in the top 25% of submissions.
