But.. many many things are still going down.
The Anthology is OUT!!
I got my contributors copy actually last week. it is a large paperback - about 400 pages. I was excited but it took me an age to read it - a day or more. I'm not sure why. It just didn't feel quite real. There were also some minor corrections I'd sent that didn't get corrected - annoying - but who cares?! Not me. I'm in PRINT! wheeee!
I finally got a chance to read a chunk of the other stories - i was sick so I read - and there were some really nice pieces. of course there is the piece by chronicpaint that of course i have a special affinity for. :D
Meanwhile, I'm still writing... short stories mostly. I feel I've broken through some kind of barrier. They are much much better than before. TheBigBad likes them. That in itself if a good thing. Even my supervisor liked the story in Desolate Places - and that was a surprise.
In other news,
I set up an etsy.com account for my steampunk jewelry... called: Clockwork Zero. (shock!)
it was shocking to say but something sold almost immediately. A very nice pair of Earrings. Still... I wasn't quite ready to have a sale so quickly so i was scrambling around trying to figure out what to do.
them's the updates. I'm going to just sit here and cough and cough.
