Big news! My story, Hunter, was accepted for UNTIL SOMEBODY LOSES AN EYE (although it may be re-titled Boy Parts). This is my first professional sale, and a real ego boost considering I haven't had much luck placing stories lately. Speaking of...

My story, Adventures in Narcolepsy, was rejected by Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens. I'm having a heck of a time finding a home for this one. It doesn't seem to fit into any one genre. It's part horror, part black comedy, part absurdist...all weird.

Got my laptop yesterday and spent half the night banging out a new story, trying to get used to the feel of it. I kinda like it so far. Maybe it'll bring me some luck.

I've removed 3 of my stories from my "Publishing Credits" section. They are The Executioner, Electric Love, and Apple Pie & Glory Holes. All were accepted by Red Scream, but since their fiction editor split, they've had to make some adjustments. You can read all the gruesome details at their web site,

I've submitted 11 more stories since my last post:

Apple Pie & Glory Holes to Cthulhu Sex
Sole Provider to Shadowed Realms
Lily's Grave to Carnival Macabre
Air Guitar for Dummies (reprint) Mind Games antho
Adventures in Narcolepsy to Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens
Cauliflower to Walking Bones
Family Tradition (reprint) to Down in the Cellar
The Executioner to Back Roads
Problem Solved to Inch
The Babysitter to Inch
Fifth Grade Hustle to Inch

Still waiting on word from the guys at the Until Somebody Loses an Eye antho concerning my story, Hunter.

Some bad news--Cauliflower was shot down by Down in the Cellar. It's a gross tale. Maybe a little too gross... Nah!
