New Bedlam

A couple of weeks ago the fabulous Jodi Lee invited me to write a story for her New Bedlam project. It's a new webzine which opens for submissions on April 1st. I was grinning from ear to ear when I read the invite, until my knees started knocking. What if she didn't like my story? Well she did, and this morning I received an acceptance for 'Insomniac Ink'. I believe it goes live on April 1st, but don't quote me on that.

So dudes, dudettes and serious horror writers start writing something for when they open for submissions in April. Working alongside Jodi are Louise Bohmer, Brandon Layng and Jeff Parish. Now that's a quartet to impress.

I am so excited to see that project come to life, and even more excited now ;) The whole "invited to submit" thing is so horrifying, but gratifying after the fact. Congratulations!

Congrats!

And, completely unrelated but just wanted to throw out that if you ever needed someone to read ToCA, I'd like to. If not, I'll buy it when it sees print! Either way, I'm happy.
