Month: March 2020

February Recap

February Recap

The month of February was a hectic one, and I didn’t quite reach all the writing goals I’d set for myself at the beginning of the year. Buying and moving into a new house is a tad bit time consuming—though definitely worth it, of course!

Having said that, there were still some anthologies published this month of which I was a part of, as well as some exciting acceptances for upcoming publications.

Publications

First up, on February 20th, I was thrilled to have my horror flash fiction piece “Just One Bottle” published in this gorgeous Twenty Twenty anthology by Black Hare Press, which I’m very proud to be a part of. This is an Australian bushfire charity edition, with proceeds going to Zoos Victoria and NSW (New South Wales) WIRES, in an effort to aid in providing emergency veterinary care to wildlife in the affected bushfire zones.

On February 24th, 100 Word BIGGER Zombie Bites: An Undead Drabbles Anthology was published, the second in a series from the crew over at Reanimated Writers Press. I was happy to have two drabbles featured in their first 100 Word Zombie Bites anthology, and am now excited to have two more drabbles included in this second beauty: “Going to Hell” and “The Fix”.

Acceptances

Another Australian bushfire charity anthology I’m happy to be a part of is Fantasia Divinity’s Burning Dreams anthology, in which I’ve had both a drabble “A Fiery Revenge” and a flash fiction piece “The Protector” accepted for publication.

Also this month, I was excited to receive acceptance into my second poetry anthology, Deathly Sorrow: A Collection of Dark Poetry, by Tony Newton Productions. My poems “I Was Born”, “Lonely Hunter”, “Remaining the Same”, “Life Repeating”, & “My Addiction” will feature.

Submissions

In the month of February, I also submitted to a few open calls in which I’m anxiously awaiting word on. These include Eerie River Publishing’s It Calls From the Forest: Volume II, Blood Song Book’s Harvest, Black Hare Press’ Ancients: Dark Drabbles #10, and Nocturnal Sirens Publishing’s Fatal Faeries. So far, I’ve received an email from Eerie River letting me know my horror short story “King of the Forest” has moved on to the second round of consideration. I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed!

Editing

On the editing front, I did manage to get edits complete for Winds of Despair by Fantasia Divinity Magazine & Publishing, as well as the edits for Descent into Madness by my amazingly talented friend, Cindar Harrell. Isn’t her cover gorgeous?! Can’t wait to see both of these beautiful books in print.

Next up, my birthday month!

Stay tuned! 😉
