I seldom have the habit of writing updates because frankly nothing all that interesting happens to warrant a full-blown post, but last week has been incredibly generous with good news. The occasion begs for a short post and as swamped with work as I am, I need something short and sweet, rather than lengthy. I mean it took me a week on write my post on a writer’s age. One week!
Anyway, in the span of seven days, March 8th and March 15th, the following happened:
- I got accepted into Clarion, but you already know that. That piece of news deserved its own announcement and how many more Clarion posts there will be… You have no idea.
- Maxim Jukabowski has approach me to reprint my erotica story “Pages & Play Things” in his MAMMOTH BOOK OF NEW EROTICA 13, which makes this my first Best Of sale and the first time I’m actually selling a reprint. I can be nothing but thrilled. This story is one of those works that I just experimented and went completely crazy for and the story has been doing well, since it first got into Geek Love.
- I won a review contest with a translation in Bulgarian of my Pornokitsch review for Kaaron Warren’s “Dead Sea Fruit”. The contest did not only got me a runner-up position, but a small monetary reward – not bad.
- I have a new sudden client, which I didn’t expect. Given some very turbulent events in my offline life, I thought the job I did for the company was not up to my own personal standards, but somehow I have impressed the hell out of the owner and now I’m in charge of the entire content.
I’m still in deadline hell, which I predict will end around March 20th, but then I’ve to run a ton of errands and plan a trip for my one week stay at the capitol. Madness I tell you. Madness!
