(August 17- 23)
So it turns out that all the work on the ‘cave’ short story was worth it, as I found out this week that it’s being published by Kyanite Press. This is tremendously exciting: two stories published in one year, and both being projects that were written specifically for the eventual publishers. In fact, both of these stories are the first ones that have been picked up through submission (my previous credits are due to publishers stumbling across my self-published tales and making an offer).
While I’m under no illusions that this means I’m suddenly going to get everything published from now on, it may well encourage me to focus more on writing for specific submissions rather than just writing what comes into my head (although the two are not mutually exclusive, of course).
November update: don’t get too excited: Kyanite Press sadly ended up closing shop before this anthology could be released.
