...And Some Days are Rewarding

Stuff I found in my e-mail:

My story, DEMM Wizard, is now published in Issue 12 of Crossed Genres magazine.


You can visit the website and read it there, or buy a copy (print, kindle, PDF, or PRC).  And look at the whole cover--the art is gorgeous!  I like this vertical ad better than the banner one. 

Also in my e-mail was an acceptance letter for one of my poems, Under a Fey Moon, for publication in the November issue of EMG Magazine. 


This issue also appears to be available for viewing and subscriptions now.

So that makes two publications appearing in one month! 

Nothing's perfect, of course. 

I haven't heard from Vampyr Verse whether they're accepting or rejecting my poems, though I thought they were to be publishing for Halloween.

And I got a rejection letter for another short story. 

Oh well, I sent it out again.  And paid the bills that are due in the first couple of days in the month. 

I'll be on several panels at Windycon, so it's really cool that I'll have a couple of print copies of Crossed Genres by then.  They will be:

Clacks and Clanks -- making your (steampunk) world's technology unique
Steampunk and Magic -- how the magical and mechanical can combine
Doing the Science in Steampunk -- how can you do the science in your stories well, if you're not a scientist
Nonverbal Communication -- other ways aliens might get their point across

Can you tell that they have a Steampunk theme this year?

Anyway, if you want to accost me with your musings or questions on any of these topics, there's a whole bunch of empty virtual space provided below, just for you.

Cool! Which one? If you don't want to share, that's ok too, of course.

I heard from Vampyr Verse this morning -- they taking one haiku from the six poems I sent. Good luck with your submission.

Thanks for the information, and congratulations!

I enjoyed your story of the DEMM wizard. I liked the poetry that enhanced the story. And I wondered what he will make of himself now.

Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed DEMM Wizard! I've been thinking about the backstory for that one; there will likely be other stories in that world.

Thank you!

More congratulations in order! (or ? I'm reading backwards chronologically and don't feel well enough to deal with the time paradox inherant in that comment)

Good luck at the Windycon, when is it?

Next weekend, and thanks for the luck.

Yeah, reading in reverse chronological order is like that.

Three things hitting publication on the same day was pretty cool, though the lack of notice on the With Painted Words thing surprised me. So now I'm wondering who won the print of the artwork, and whether they'll ever notify anyone but the person who gets it in the mail!

It would be nice if they at least announced the winner. I took a quick peek at that site & think I would like to submit a photo/couple of photos for people to write to. I wouldn't mind doing a print for the winner. But if you entered I'd have to maybe do a secret ballot poll on my DW or LJ so no one could accuse me of being biased if I picked you for the winner!

My impression is that the contest for a print is only happening for the first issue--which isn't even the first issue they'd planned on, it's more like Issue Zero.

But who knows what they'll do in the future?

I think it would be great if you submitted images to them! Also, I wouldn't count on me selling to them regularly, even if I were to submit every time (and that's unlikely; I currently have no inspiration for the cute dog pic).

But I appreciate your faith in me.
