As of now, I am (going to be) a published author!

My very first short story acceptance on a story I both worked my ass off on, and loved.

The Ace of Knives” has been accepted for Postscript To Darkness 6.

A pyro in Team Fortress 2 named “The Ace of Knaves”, Amal El-Mohtar’s “Wing” and “Hoarding” planted the seed, well-timed words watered it, nourished it, made it grow.

And it left the nest, found a home.

I’ve squealed thanks on Twitter already, run amuck, hit things while running amuck, and ran amuck some more. So.

It will be published early next year.

More details then.

So this is the gig I’m doin’…

So I mentioned that once I felt confident, and been doing it consistently for a while, I’ll announce what I’m doing and where?

Well here it is.

I’m the Associate Editor for Abyss & Apex.

One of the first orders of business:- Our award-winning, nominated, and honourably mentioned stories are now FULLY listed on our Announcements page. There’s a lot. (http://www.abyssapexzine.com/announcements)

These include stories by Barth Anderson, Aliette de Bodard, Paul Di Filippo, Caren Gussoff, Howard V. Hendrix, Nora K. Jemisin, Jay Lake, Lisa Mantchev, Mary-Ann Mohanraj, Ruth Nestvold, one of my favourites-Tony Pi’s Aurora-nominated “Metamorphoses in Amber”-, Cat Rambo, Bud Sparhawk, Michael Swanwick, Rachel Swirsky, Lavie Tidhar, and Genevieve Valentine.

Apparently, after Wendykins took over, she created a monster and became overwhelmed with submissions. I’m helping her swim. She had to cut down the submissions period to a week from a month, because we went from 200 pieces of slush to read, to over 1500.

Yeah. O_o

Wendy goes into some detail on this over at Abyss & Apex’s blog.

At this point we’ve got a good rep, and I’m here to help ensure that we keep it that way, and improve on said rep.

So bring it.

Your submissions, I mean.
