Big Writing News

My short story entitled, "Akhila, Divided" has been accepted for Clockwork Phoenix: Tales of Beauty and Strangeness, a new, annual anthology edited by Mike Allen.

I'm very excited about this sale for many reasons. "Akhila, Divided" is a tragedy with challenging subject matter, so I was afraid I wouldn't sell it at all. However, I have not only sold it, I have sold it to an anthology which received over 1300 submissions, edited by a talented and discriminating editor and containing a stories by Tanith Lee, Cathrynne Valente, Leah Bobet and others.

This brings my total Clarion story sales to four. "From Our Minds to Yours" went to The Pagan Anthology of Short Fiction: Thirteen Prize Winning Tales, "Bringing Woden to the Little Green Men" went to PanGaia, "Casting Sin" went to Murky Depths and now "Akhila, Divided" has gone to Clockwork Phoenix: Tales of Beauty and Strangeness. Not bad...
