Short Story Month: The Reprint

I'm delighted to announce my short story 'The Scratch of an Old Record' which originally appeared in the July 2009 issue of Necrotic Tissue will be reprinted in the 'Best of Necrotic Tissue' anthology. It's bittersweet, because (as most of you know) this will be the last issue of NT.

Short story month continues and I've fallen a little by the wayside BUT I did have to return to work today after an 11 day break (much to do) and followed up work with a visit to the dentist. And she didn't use enough novacaine. Sob. Ouch. I'm such a baby.

Plus I joined tumblr (not that I can use that as a not writing excuse)... http://categardner.tumblr.com/ ...expect to find silly things there and photos. I suspect lots of photos. If you're on tumblr let me know and I'll follow you.



Short Story Month tally:

1. Blow a Whistle, I'm done (1876 words)
2. The Lies Moths Tell (595 words - draft not finished)

Absolutely fantastic, Cate! What a great story. (Not NT closing...that story sucks)

Congrats!

Simon Kewin said...

Congrats Cate! And sorry to hear about the tooth thing. That's not so good.

Michael Stone said...

Congrats on the reprint. I love 'Scratch of an Old Record'. Easily one of my faves in SMIPS.

Katey said...

Very cool about the NT best of--love it, though yeah, sad to see it go overall.

Wooohooo, tumblr!

Josh Reynolds said...

Sad to see NT go, but congratulations!

Deborah Walker said...

That is awesome news, Cate. That's going to be one hell of an anthology.

Good work on the stories, too. More is good. Have you written your million, yet?* I reckon I'm half-way there.

(you've heard that theory, that it take a million words to write at a consitent pro level? You writing is wonderful; I bet you're already there.

If I write a million and don't start selling big time, I'm asking for my money back).

Congratyelations on yer story, lady!!

Tony said...

Nice! Getting your story out there for one more lap is great. Boy, my to-read pile grows by the day.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, guys.

Deborah, I so must have written my million words by now and if not, I must be teetering at 999,999.

Congrats! I love that story.

Natalie L. Sin said...

We're going to be in it together! I just wish it wasn't the last issue ever.

Cate Gardner said...

I thought one of your stories would make it in, Natalie, but didn't like to ask. I think the first of your stories that I ever read was in NT and yours was definitely the first NT story I read.
