P&E poll results and Ruins update!

The final scores are tallied for the Preditors and Editors Poll and " The Wicked Deed" has placed 22nd, along with 28 other people. Not bad, seeing as someone has to vote it on in the first place. Hopefully next year goes better.

If everything goes as planned Ruins Metropolis will be out around the end of February. I've seen the TOC and it looks awesome. The full list of stories should be listed here within the next couple of days.

Preditors & Editors Poll

I just found out that someone voted my story "The Wicked Deed" onto the Preditors and Editors Poll! It's a little too late to do anything about it now, since the voting ends at midnight tonight, but it's still an honor to even be nominated.

Thank you.

Fastest Acceptances EVER!

At 7:54 I emailed two of my mirco fiction stories to MicroHorror.com.

By 7:59 I got them accepted. Wow!

"Back to the Beginning" and "The Price of Utopia" are both up on MicroHorror. It's taken me forever to find "Back to the Beginning" a home, and I am happy that it's with MicroHorror. As for "The Price of Utopia," once you read it you will see why it was a hard sell. But it does make you think.

You can either view them on the Free Fiction part of my website, or through the link below. Enjoy!
