Apologies and Thanks

Owing to my monumental stupidity, I accidentally deleted all the "thank yous" I had sent to those kind souls on LiveJournal who had congratulated me on last week’s good news.

Really mortified that I did that, folks.  Permit me to issue a blanket "Thanks" to everyone, along with my apologies.

Realms of Fantasy Employs “Wet Work: A Tale of the Unseen”

Today I learned that I sold my story "Wet Work:  A Tale of the Unseen" to Realms of Fantasy.

Me. In Realms. Dude.

Pardon me while I bounce around the room.

<bounce bounce bounce>

This sale is particularly sweet for a couple of reasons:

1. It’s Realms, man. I’ve been trying to crack this market for years.

2. Regular readers of my progress reports may recall that I liked this story so much I later expanded it into a novel. So if the story can sell . . . let’s just call it proof of concept.

So, to sum up:  Story sold.  Rotundo happy.

That is all.

Progress Report, in which I take baby steps

Database has been updated and many mss have been shoved back out the door, some of them kicking and screaming–but out they went, anyway.  They’ve been collecting dust for too long.

Now, rewrites beckon.  But some thought must also be given to the next novel project.  I’m thinking that I might be able to do a little bit of both this week. 

Wait, what?  Did Rotundo just mention . . . multitasking?

Aye, and so he did.  But don’t be too impressed just yet.  I believe I’ll tackle the smallest of the rewrite projects–that wee essay on time travel I mentioned a few weeks back.  It shouldn’t take too long, and will leave me with an opportunity to do a bit of brainstorming.

Baby steps.

Write Club update:  Two and a half months and no response from an agent on a query.  I’m calling it.

Tottering on . . .
