All Kinds of News

Things are trucking along here at Chez Brozek and, as usual, I am a busy-busy lass but I'm whittling my "To Do" list down to something more manageable these days. This is kind of where I am and stuff.

Editor stuff:
I turned in the full manuscript for HUMAN FOR A DAY for DAW. I am so damn proud of that thing. Some beautiful stories in it and my esteem for some of my authors has gone through the roof.

I have sent out the invitations to SPACE TRAMPS, Full-Throttle Space Tales #5 for Flying Pen Press. The Publisher is pleased with the authors I have writing for it and so am I.

I am in the process of reading stories for the BEAST WITHIN 2 anthology for Graveside Tales. It is slow going but mostly because of everything else on my plate. The authors will hear one way or another in a couple of weeks.

Author stuff:
I sold a story to a DAW anthology and I feel like I have leveled up as an author. I'm not naming the story or the anthology until the contract is signed but the editor has told me she's taking it.

I sold a story, "M.O.V.E.," to NO MAN'S LAND by Dark Quest Books. This is the fourth anthology in the Defending the Future series of anthologies and I'm very pleased to be sharing the TOC with the likes of Brenda Cooper, Ann Wilkes, and Danielle Ackley-McPhail.

The big news: I just signed a contract to write a standalone tie-in novella for Dark Quest Games' new RPG setting, SHADESIDE. The novella is currently titled THE LADY OF SEEKING IN THE CITY OF WAITING and I'm thrilled to pieces. It combines all of my happiest thoughts with my most sought after goals—gaming, tie-in work, and long form fiction with the possibility of more work.

I have a couple of other things I must get done before I can settle in for the long term writing on LADY OF SEEKING—another anthology story, a Colonial Gothic PDF setting, Dice & Deadlines, and a non-fiction essay—but once those drop off the radar, it will be smooth sailing for a while.

I think.
