Happy New Year! Here’s hoping 2015 will be happy, blessed and productive.
Since my last post here, I’ve got another acceptance. I’m quite pleased with this one because it’s my story that’s a mash-up of a couple of elements from my favourite hikayats, some literary allusions to Tam Lin and Rossetti’s Goblin Fruit (which the editor actually got! Huzzah!) plus, were-tigers! Most importantly, this story was accepted by an editor who understood what I was going for with the metaphors and who gave a very sensitive reading/commentary of my story in her acceptance letter! I couldn’t be more pleased.
Tower of the Rosewater Goblet has been sent out to preview readers. I’ve got four preview comments in, and I’m still waiting for a couple more before I do final edits and revisions. Working on that cover too.
Because of various deadlines causing me to nearly implode, publication date for my publications have all suffered a little, but here’s a list for you:
On the accepted publications front: “Moult” in Alphabet of Embers (my first pro sale), “Merlusine” in Liminality, and “Sang Rimau and the Medicine Woman” in that unspecified publication (it IS a semi-pro acceptance though, so I am very happy).
So that’s what you’ll have in store in the first half of 2015 apart from my short stories and poems being published in other publications. Also, don’t forget, the reading period for Delinquent’s Spice re-opens on the 1st of February.
