Confusion? -or- What’s a short story?

I recently sent a story off for an anthology. Standard, and, like 60% of the stories I send out, destined for rejection I thought. And, sure enough, after two weeks, back came the e-mail. But the rejection was not the normal “thanks, but you suck” email I tend to get (especially from Australian publishers), it […]

Some news – three more rejections came in the past week. Spandex Dreams, my wrestling novel which I don’t think I’ve discussed here, was rejected by the Canadian publisher who asked for it.

Novel #17

Novel number 17 was a diversion for me. A serious one. But, first, a bunch of novellas were written in the interim. One – Second Home – clocked in at only 16000 words, but this was long enough for a younger reader book, which is good, because it was written with 11-13 year olds in […]
