Urk, it’s too hot tonight. Of course, this is nothing compared to what others have been putting up with. But still. Hot.
Melting inhibits the revision so instead, I’ll chat about some odds and ends!
First, and very exciting, is that the ToC for Worlds Next Door has been announced and my short story, ‘Graffiti’ is in there! This story was inspired by an old house near Centennial Park that a friend and I inspected. Of course, we had no hope of buying it, but the place was terribly rundown and deliciously creepy. Thankfully the new owners haven’t knocked it down and seem to be repairing it — it must have been beautiful in its day and hopefully will be again!
But why so exciting? Well, because I love what Twelfth Planet Press has been producing and it’s great to be working with them. And then there’s the ToC itself, what amazing company to be in! And last, but not least, because my husband has done the artwork to accompany the story! Which I also love (lots of love in this post isn’t there…) but that probably goes without saying.
See! Fun and exciting all round.
Second is a review of ‘Albatross Ghosts’ at Tangent Online. I particularly love:
I would encourage Anderton to apply her talent to riskier projects. She has a nice touch with foreshadowing and with other sorts of innuendo and would do well by expanding to more creative storylines.
I feel inspired by that, challenged. This bravado will probably only last until the next rejection but hey, might as well enjoy it while I can
