Two more short story sales

Tuesday, 9 September 2014

Increasing my submission count seems to be paying off! A couple more sales to report.

Sold a flash story (Her Father's Eyes) to Acidic Fiction (which launches this month). Their guidelines are here if you're interested. Unusually, they pay a fixed amount regardless of story length, but since mine is a flash piece it works out at a nice 5c per word...

And I've also sold another story - Leviathan - to KZine. Editor Graeme Hurry says "The story is extremely well written and the 'valve punk' science excellently brought to life". Valve punk! Who knew? Their guidelines are here.

Mind you, wonderful as acceptances are, they do mean my submission count is falling again. Aagh! Time to write some more...


  1. oooh, very nice. by the way, what's valve punk?

  2. Congrats! That's awesome news. Never heard of valve punk. I'll have to check it out.

  3. Way to go, amigo! I followed your lead and subbed to Acidic Fiction too. Glad I did.


I'd love to know what you think.
