Sale: "The Dragon in the Wardrobe", Betwixt Magazine

My tribute to Anne McCaffrey has found a home.

I'm happy to announce that "The Dragon in the Wardrobe", the story I wrote in the week after Annie Mac died, will be published in the January 2014 edition of Betwixt Magazine

Thanks to editor Joy Crelin for picking up the story and giving it a boost.

That's number three for August! Woo hoo!

Sale: "Halfway Between Asleep and Dead" to Luna Station Quarterly

And number eight for 2013 means I've beaten last years sales numbers!

My creepy out-of-body-experience story "Halfway Between Asleep and Dead" has been picked up by Luna Station Quarterly for their September issue. This is another repeat sale - "The Woman With Flowers in Her Hair" appear there back in September 2011.

It's pleasing to see Luna Station Quarterly go from strength to strength. Since I was last published there, they now offer token payments and put out their issues in various e-formats.

It's also nice to have one of my older stories picked up. "Halfway" has been going round the traps for at least two years.

"The Future Fire" loves me: Sale and Review!

I am pleased to announce that my story "The Fear of Falling Under" has been picked by editor Djibril al-Ayad for publication in an upcoming issue of "The Future Fire".

This is the second story of mine The Future Fire has taken. Back in February 2012, "The City of Sand and Knives" was published there, with accompanying gorgeous artwork by Laura-Anca Adascalitei.

I'm happy this story has found a great home, because it is a difficult piece about survival, confusion,  and loneliness after disaster.

Also over at The Future Fire this week is a brilliant honest review of "Daughters of Icarus". Djibril was equally honest about the flaws and strength of the anthology, and says about my story "Me Myself I":
This is perhaps the most wonderfully feminist story in the volume, celebrating the importance to all women (and not only women) of companionship, sympathy, support and learning from one another.

So a big double thank you to The Future Fire for yet again having the best interests of contemporary feminist science fiction at heart.
