I Have Sold Things!

Long time no see.

Happy to say I’ve been busy and now I can talk about it.

I’ve sold my short story ‘The Bois’, which made the 2017 recommended reading list for the Nebulas, to three markets.

In my first translation sale ever, Spanish lovers of scifi will be able to read ‘The Bois’ in SuperSonic Magazine’s No. 11 tribute issue to Ursula K. Le Guin, which came out this July.

Huge shout-out to my editor Arrate, who really, really got me and this story, and made some amazing suggestions that helped this non-Spanish speaker immensely.

The Apex Book of World SF Volume 5 has also included my story. It’s available for pre-order now. Until then, you can enjoy a playlist of songs selected for each story here.  I love the one my marvelous editor, Cristina Jurado, selected for me!

Rosarium Publishing and the amazing Bill Campbell has also included my story in their  impressive anthology Sunspot Jungle Volume 2. I would have paid to get in alongside these giants of the field, but they paid me instead!

Everyone one of these collections includes other amazing stories, so feel free to buy them all.

To say I’m shocked this little story has done so well is an understatement. I trunked this story for years, convinced it wasn’t good enough. Had Truancy Magazine not had such a specific call for folklore based stories, I never would have dusted it off. This has been a great lesson for me in two ways. Never throw anything away and never assume a story is not publishable. Sometimes, it just hasn’t found it’s home yet.

Don’t give up on yourself.
