Warrior Wisewoman & Cone Zero Reviews

In writing news, there isn’t much except I was writing stories for the alphabet erotic anthologies and the publisher has chosen to cancel it. Unless the editor finds another buyer and the anthos remain the same, I’m now needing to shop around a couple of more stories. Alas.

I’m waiting to hear on a couple of stories going through a second reading but won’t jinx anything by naming them or the publishers yet. And I don’t know when my poems will be out in Pinecone, On Spec and PanGaia, and the story in Don Juan and Men. Holding patterns for now while I ruminate on three stories I’m trying to write and do some editing for Chizine and Aberrant Dreams, and on a friend’s collection of poetry.

The novel requires more energy than I have at the moment but I’m hoping that week I get off on the holidays won’t all be eating and drinking and I’ll be able to move forward on some of them.

Here is another review for the Warrior Wisewoman anthology. Although it says no good or ill of my story it does cover all of the stories. http://www.sfrevu.com/php/Review-id.php?id=7231

And for Nemonymous 8: Cone Zero another two reviews though I still cannot say which story is mine. To find the specific review, scroll to the bottom of the page: http://www.horrorworld.org/reviews.htm

Writing Update

My two copies of The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra arrived in my mailbox yesterday. It’s a hefty, trade paperback with black and white illustrations for all positions. Not all are done into stories but they’re all describe. My story “Janukurpara” is one of many written in exotic or Asian settings. It’s edited by Maxim Jakubowski and published by Robinson, in the UK, and Running Press in the US.

Two poems have also been accepted for future publication in PanGaia magazine. They are “Of the Corn” and “Secrets of Trees.”

This review has just come out at The Fix on Nemonymous 8: Cone Zero. I still can’t tell you which story is mine but the review is there in great detail. .hmmessage P { margin:0px; padding:0px } body.hmmessage { FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY:Tahoma } http://thefix-online.com/reviews/cone-zero-nemonymous-8/

I’ve completed a couple of flash fiction pieces, a couple poems and a story. I’m working on a skewered fairy tale right now and can give more information once I know it’s accepted. And I’m considering applying for a larger grant to take some time to write my novel. I have limited days and must get going on that soon.
