“The Peculiar Salesgirl” and “Non Evidens” En Route from Dog Horn Publishing
I have a couple of short fiction projects that have just been published (or are on the verge of being published) by UK-based Dog Horn Publishing.
My story “The Peculiar Salesgirl” was selected as both “Editor’s Choice” and the cover story for the latest issue (#10) of Polluto (the “Wage Slave Orgy”-themed issue, chock-full of stories addressing the current state of economic affairs). It’s now available for sale, so click the cover to check it out. In addition to my tale, this issue offers stories and poems by nearly thirty other authors (including a few folks who read this blog or whose names I recognize from social media– Glen R. Krisch , James Everington, Christos Callow, Jr. , and Chris Kelso all seem like familiar names).
I can also now announce my first novelette sale. The story’s called “Non Evidens” , and it will be appearing in Women Writing the Weird II: Dreadful Daughters (a follow-up to 2011′s Women Writing the Weird.)
I’m particularly excited about “Non Evidens” because it’s one of the few stories I’ve written that passes the Bechdel test. I like that it’s my first novelette sale, too. I seem to be gravitating toward writing longer and longer works. I’m not pushing myself in that direction — it just seems to be happening. So I’m just going with the flow, yanno?
