My flash-fiction story "Canvas" just sold to Daily Science Fiction -- my first pro-paying sale. I'm pretty jazzed about it. DSF is a great magazine. Subscription's free, and every weekday they e-mail out a story. They also keep an archive of all of these on their website. I'm not sure when my story will actually appear, but I'll be sure to let you know.
My favorite living short story writer, Eric James Stone, has a number of stories published in Daily Science Fiction, which made selling "Canvas" even better. If you haven't read anything by him, I highly recommend it. I was terribly excited when he won a Nebula this year. His bibliography contains a truckload of his work available either for free through magazines like DSF or free via audio podcast.
Congratulations on selling to DSF. I look forward to reading your story.ReplyDelete
And thanks for the mention of my work.
Hey Megan, I finally got to check out your blog. I enjoyed your post on Maze Runner and Ricochet Robots (and I quite enjoyed Maze Runner myself!), but I also clicked on a couple of your other posts, and you are an all-around very insightful person!ReplyDelete
If I may make one suggestion--and I know, who the heck am I as an internet stranger making suggestions?--consider putting up a Blog Archive widget on your page. I found that "Older Posts" link very easy to miss--in fact, I *did* miss it, and couldn't figure out where the heck the post you mentioned on Janice's site was. The only reason I found it was because I clicked on your Twitter link and you mentioned it there. Also, an archive widget would allow one to browse your posts by title, which I think a new reader is more likely to do than literally slog through your entire backlog. *shrug* It's juts a thought.
Congratulations on the sale, by the way!
@EJS -- Thanks for dropping by. You really do write amazing fiction.ReplyDelete
@Joe -- You're not *completely* random. I have seen you around Janice's site. Thanks for taking the time to comment on the layout. I'm new to blogging, so your advice is very welcome.
