The Mechanical Heart of Him

I am delighted to announce that the folk at Daily Science Fiction have accepted my short story The Mechanical Heart of Him.

Third acceptance of the year. Need to write more short stories. Bites fingernails and looks at looming deadlines...no, seriously, I do. Writers should be given special clocks at birth that they can use to slow down time when they have a ton of things to write.

This will be my second story published at Daily Science Fiction. My previous story Exit Stage Life (a very wee flash) was published last September.

Congrats! That's a great sale, Cate. So great, it deserves a "Woooooooo!" :-)

If you find one of these special clocks, you must mail me one.

Today's ridiculous word verification (two tries for this one): daymodu ndustai

'grats, Cate. You always need to write more stories. The world needs more Cate Gardner stories. ;)

Deborah Walker said...

Oh wow. Awesome sauce. You should write more shorts because you're bloody good at them.

Fantastic, Cate - they're such a great market.

BTW - have you considered turning off that darn word verification? This is my 3rd attempt to comment ...

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Milo.

Thanks, Simon - and doubly thanks for the tip off about the word verification. I've now removed it.

Congrats to you!

And agreed regarding the clock - I reckon if I could just freeze time for a year, maybe a year and a half, I'd get all those projects done that need doing so I can then focus on one thing at a time.

Tick tock tick tock...

Cate Gardner said...

We must begin a quest to find the clock, Ray

Ray Cluley said...

I'm sure there's a story there. If only I had the time to write it. (Oh, the irony...)

Cate Gardner said...

Ha!

Katey said...

Three already -- go team Cate! I cannot wait for it :D
