Octopi Chandeliers, Recent Submissions

Because the world needs octopi wherever we can find them (and because the world also needs a bit more whimsy):

The work of Adam Wallacavage. And if you're in the Culver City, CA area, he's got a show going on for the next week. See more octopus chandeliers here.


Find me today over at Short, Fast, and Deadly, in issue 22. I've got two pieces, "Untouchable" and "Canon."

Many thanks to JQ, Senior Editor/Instigator, for being incredibly kind about my work and also very welcoming and encouraging.

I've also had a piece accepted at Hazard Cat. Expecting it to post soon.

I'm exceptionally excited about these: my first acceptance, and my first time receiving payment for my work. Yes, I got paid for writing. Er, I won't be cancelling my appointments and selling my work truck; not just yet, anyway. But I'm very happy about the progress I've made so far.

I have slowed my submissions, as I've shifted my focus entirely to my book over the last few weeks. I'm very excited, and I love what I'm doing now more than ever before. It's taken me a long time to reach this point -- years, in fact -- but I finally feel that I'm doing what I'm supposed to, doing what I want above all other things. It's truly an incredible feeling. The only thing that scares me now is giving up, as the worst thing that could happen would be if I couldn't write anymore.
