A Date and an Announcement

First, we have a pub date! My quirky romance, "End Times" will be published in Every Day Fiction on October 24. Mark your calendars! In spite of the title, I promise it's not another depressing post-apocalyptic tale. Honest! One of the editors called it, "A sweet and unusual romance." It's a departure from my usual work and I'm excited that it found a home.

And next, it looks like Every Day Fiction is looking for slush pile readers. Here's the post where they're asking for volunteers. It sounds like it could be a good experiene and a way to make new contacts in the online fiction community, so if anyone has the time, get in touch with them and let them know!

Happy reading and writing, everyone!

Oh, wowie -- congratulations again, and I am marking my calendar as I speak! :) I can't wait to read your story. "Sweet and unusual romance" -- sounds like exactly the kind I like!

I spent a few years reading slush professionally, and so wish everyone who responds to Every Day Fiction's request the very best of luck--it's a far more difficult job than you'd think.

Meanwhile, congratulations on your publication: I hope you enjoy many more. Writing's a difficult thing at the best of times, and these are dark days.
