I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I really do enjoy writing. I'm not quite my finest when it comes to blogging, but then, I'm not exactly blowing the roof off the fiction scene, either. Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoy writing, and I figure, if you're a regular reader, you probably don't mind reading my writing, so I thought I would post an occasional update of where my fiction is or could be in the near future, in case any of you are bored or curious.
First off, I have a story under consideration for "Chicago Overcoat", a print anthology based off the theme 'hard-boiled detective meets (blank)', in which you mix up the noir genre with whatever the hell you want. My story, titled "White Pittsburgh", mixes it up a little with some minor urban fantasy in the form of ghost hunting.
I only have one other story currently under consideration, and that's for Sam's Dot Publishing, which has an upcoming print anthology titled "The Book of Tentacles", a collection of stories that involve tentacles in some way or another. Some will be horror, some will probably be a little porny. My "I Am Very Important" is an absurdist comedy.
This brief bit of self-pimpery comes in the form of, if I'm right, my 100th post of 2008. I don't know how either story will turn out, in the long run. I enjoy both stories, but neither is, I believe, a guaranteed entry. Still, wish me luck - and I'll definitely keep you all in the loop with the status of these stories and any other submissions I make in the near future.
Have a great weekend, all of you, and thanks for sticking with me!
