Moving On

My little girl has a bout of tonsillitis keeping me at home at the moment, so I thought I'd try and make some progress.

Today I emailed out comments and suggestions to two writers-in-arms, finished reading MageSign (review to come - maybe tomorrow), resubmitted Wamphyri which received a rejection yesterday, and revised and submitted Dreaming to the Blackness Within Anthology.

Quite a productive day all in all.

Time for bed.


  1. Sorry to hear about Wamphyri. Good luck with Dreaming.

    Tonsillitis sucks. I had mine taken out when I was four. I still remember the hospital visit in minute detail, right down to the cars in the parking lot, just outside my window.

  2. I hope your little girl feels better soon. My brother used to get tonsillitis all the time. I had my tonsils out (like Jamie, at four years old, and I too can remember everything about it, even the books my mom read to me afterwards).

  3. I've still got my tonsils - and my appendix. Only the wisdom teeth have left the building.

    I received some nice comments back about Wamphyri and apparently it went to a vote before missing out.

    This was the short story I wrote for my final assignment last year. I know it's a little predictable, and very much part of my writing style before I branched out with pieces like Swirls in Obsidian and Dreaming, but I still have a soft spot for it and would like to earn some real money from it - I'd be happy with just a couple of bucks, as long as it's payment.

    I need to start looking at getting published in higher paying markets. I should be moving forward. Being published is nice - getting paid is better.

  4. Paying markets are good. Even a buck is appreciated. I am just starting into them and it really does make the process more enjoyable. :)
