Several things have changed since my last post, so this is the latest news on my stories. My story, “Moonsleep” has now appeared in the BSF (British Fantasy Society’s) Monthly Story Project as the Story of the Month. It was due to be published in January 2020 but there’d been some delays.
Sadly, I’ve heard that my story, “Mirror in Her Hand” will not now be appearing in the “Heroes and Villains” anthology by the Facebook Fantasy & Science Fiction Support Group as it has had to halt the production of this anthology for various reasons. I’m be looking for opportunities to submit this elsewhere though.
I’ve heard that my story, “A Monster Met” will be appearing in print by Demain Publishing at some point during this year. They’re issuing all of Series 1 of Short ! Sharp! ShockS! as paperbacks this year. I’m very excited about that. Will update about the exact date.
I’ve had an article on online writing critique groups accepted for Focus, the BFSA (British Science Fiction Association’s) magazine and I’ve heard that it will be published in March 2020.
Time for an update on what’s been happening with my stories since the beginning of the year.
I’m sorry to say that my short story, Moonsleep wasn’t published as the British Fantasy Society’s Monthly Story Project for January 2020. I was told it had been delayed. I’m trying to find out when it will be coming out.
I’ve had a short story, Mirror In Her Hand, accepted for Facebook’s Fantasy and Science Fiction Authors’ Support Group anthology, Heroes and Villains. The expected date of publication is 1 April 2020 but I expect that this may be subject to change. Mirror In Her Hand is a modern adaptation of the Snow White and the Seven Dwarves fairy tale.
I was delighted to hear that my short story “Cinderfeller” has been accepted for one of B Cubed Press’s anthologies. It was originally going to be called Alternative Bedtime Stories for Progressive Parents but apparently the title is going to be changed. http://www.bcubedpress.com
An article I wrote comparing two online critique groups, Critique Circle and the Online Writing Workshop for SF, Fantasy & Horror will shortly be appearing in the British Science Fiction Association’s magazine, Focus.http://www.bsfa.co.uk
I received an email today saying that my short fantasy story, “Tully and the Ghost” has been accepted for the anthology, Harvey Duckman Presents. It was going to be Volume 4 but then got a further email saying going to be in Volume 3, which should be out in October 2019.
I wanted to give an update on the BFS (British Fantasy Society) Emerging Horizons anthology that is due to be published this year. The editor has notified me that he’s in discussions with the chair of the BFS about the plans regarding this project, which sounds a little ominous to me but I’m staying positive until I hear otherwise.
Also, some good news, my short story, Moonsleep has been accepted for the British Fantasy Society (BFS) Monthly Story Project. This project is a short story that is sent out to all members of the British Fantasy Society every month. (An additional reason to join the BFS). I’m not sure yet when it will be going out but I’ll post the date when I know it.
