Discovering an overlooked treasure

James W. Hall’s Hard Aground was published in 1992. I’m not sure how it slipped past me, since I’ve pretty much grabbed each of his books at the time of their release. I had to jump back nearly 20 years to read Hard Aground after stumbling over it browsing the stacks at my local library. Time travel has never been so much fun.

Monkeybicycle Publishes My Short Story ‘Bunnies Bathing’

My First Fiction Publication has been posted today as the weekend feature at Monkeybicycle. I endured 127 rejections of various stories before I received this acceptance from Guest Web Editor Casey Bye (and screamed myself silly).

 

Why didn’t I give up once I’d reached 50 or 100 rejections? I wish I could say it’s because I’m tough and driven and I know that my writing is worth putting out in the world, but…
