First off, I just signed a contract to appear in Post Mortem Press’ anthology titled 44 Lies by 22 Authors. It’s going to be a wonderful collection of wonderful Post Mortem Press authors. For a tentative table of contents please visit author Christian A. Larsen’s page here who summed everything up nicely http://exlibrislarsen.com/2014/08/08/44-lies-by-22-authors-flash-fic-antho-due-this-fall/ .
The short story I wrote for this collection is titled “Funeral Print.” It deals with a new mother who is obsessing over an antique funeral print in her home, and before you ask, yes, it may have some non-fictional qualities.
I have not been writing many short stories lately, as I have been focusing on my larger book length projects. This was the first short story I have written in a long time, and I’m happy it will be published.
Also, I received another brilliant piece of news this morning that I cannot share, yet. Before you ask again, no, it does not deal with any agent representation. It deals with a project I worked on for a very long time that may have finally found its home. I look forward to sharing those details soon.
On the agent front, as those of you who have a literary agent, or who have queried agents in the past, may know it’s a process, a very long, gut wrenching I-want-to-drown-my-sadness-in-a-glass-of-merlot process. I’m keeping up the faith, because that’s all I can do. I’m still writing, editing, and yes, praying to hear back from an agent to request a full manuscript. Then, after they read a full manuscript, if I get that far, I will once again go through the I-want-to-drown-my-sadness-in-a-glass-of-merlot waiting to hear back from them.
That’s all I have for now.
Thanks for playing.
