“The Girl Who Ate Galaxies” is out at Syntax and Salt! Several other great stories as well. Link provided, read and leave a comment if you’d like! I wrote this story in one sitting, edited once. Like Memory Drive and All the Colors I Cannot See, it was both wonderful to write and a personal favorite.
available today as a paperback format or e-book. Four other great stories in this issue as well.
I made it to the second round of Daily Science Fiction with “Layla 8”!
Then I checked my submission over at Clarkesworld-it said ‘under review-second round’, meaning it was in the top three percent!
I received a form rejection shortly after-but holy hell, that was a good run, right?
The thing is, now I’m wondering if I hallucinated it. It seems possible.
I’m rereading Layla 8 and finding all kinds of things I wish I changed-still hoping against hope it makes the cut.
While I dissected myself and my rejections, someone said, “you really think it’s going to happen for you, huh?”
Nope. I think I’m going to make it happen. Not because I’m the best. But I am a stubborn heart and I can take a thousand rejections. A million. Infinite rejections.
I’ve sold two stories in two months. Published a few free.
“Artificial Love” will be available July 18th at Literally Stories. “All the Colors I Cannot See” has been sold to Metaphorosis Magazine.
To everyone else getting rejections today-if you’ve got something to say, keep writing. It matters. I’ve read stories on small, indie websites that have imprinted themselves on my heart.
Write and read on!
I’m so excited! I am participating in an anthology!
My story’s theme assignment is perfect for me.
Does this mean I’m like a real writer now?
”All the Colors I Cannot See” has been purchased by Metaphorosis Magazine after an extremely lengthy rewrite process and edited by the absolutely phenomenal B Morris Allen.
publication date coming soon!
Metaphorosis will soon have print editions available and can be preordered now on Amazon-including June 2018 which featured “Nobody’s Daughter and the Tree of Life.”
happy writing, reading, and life, my friends!
