If at first you don't succeed

Necrotic Tissue finally bit.

They bought my 100-word story 'Bug Eyed' for their 100 word bites. It will be published in the January 2009 issue, which will be available as a free PDF download.

And while you are waiting for my wondrous story, check out Issue 3, which contains Natalie L. Sin's, Losing Face in Kwai Chung. The story inspired the cover art to the left.

Ooh, I love drabbles, both writing and reading 'em. Will have to check out the guidelines.

Oh, and congratulations! (c:

Do it now - they're only open until the end of October and then you have to wait until January to submit.

Rob Brooks said...

Congrats. I'm very enamored of the idea of a 100 word story. I've got one out to them right now for their Malpractice anthology--I hope it's my turn now!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Ooh, fingers crossed for your Malpractice sub; I believe they will be making their selections real soon.

Congrats! Drabbles are darn hard--I've never managed to write one that's any good.

Aaron Polson said...

Congrats! Necrotic Tissue is a real class act.

Natalie L. Sin said...

Congratulations! And thanks for the promotion : )

Michael Stone said...

Thanks for the tip-off Cate. I've just banged out a drabble and sent it in to NT. I'll let you know how I fare.

Catherine J Gardner said...

KC - I've failed countless times, and yet other people's efforts seem so effortless.

Aaron - They are an impressive outfit.

Cheers, Natalie.

Fingers crossed, Michael

Congrats! I was putting something together for Malpractice, but it never materialized. Still, I'll definitely try these guys at some point. It'll be fun to have such liberty with the gore.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Brenda & Justin.

Congratulations, Cate! I cannot wait to see what comes of it, their drabbles selections are always so much fun!

Wait, you mean horror isn't mainstream?...

It is to me.

My favorite authors of all time are Poe and King. Nothing better than curling up in bed with those gents.

Congrats, Cate! Once again, you're on a roll this year! I hope at some point to be nearly as productive as you are.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Woot! I'm impressed by anyone who can write interesting 100 word stories; it's harder than it looks!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Who said the story was interesting? :)

Ian said...

Hey, big congrats Frighters! NT is a good score indeed. (Maybe I should give it a try...)

Cheers! (iamacamera)
