Taking Stock – 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, I’ve been taking account of my writing over the year. As it stands, I submitted stories 64 times over the year, which is less than last year. I’ve had two acceptances so far in 2017: one was a reprint, podcasted at The Overcast; the.

My New Story, Iago v2.0 Is Now Up at Nature

As mentioned earlier this week, my story, Iago v2.0 is now up at Nature. I have wanted to write something like this ever since Facebook was found to be conducting emotional contagion experiments on users. However, the moment passed, and Facebook was able to paper over or dismiss any worries.

My Second Acceptance at Nature: Futures

Earlier this week, I received word I would be published at Nature: Futures for the second time. I completely forgot to mention this earlier because of the flurry of activity at home. My sister and her kids have been staying with us rather than return to Puerto Rico in its.

Acceptance at The Overcast

My story, “Every Orphan Child to a Good Home Should Go” will be produced and podcasted by The Overcast in September. I’m glad to have it reach a wider crowd. I’ll post the link as soon as it becomes available. At the moment, I have been working on translating one.

The 2017 Nebulas Conference

I went to the SFWA 2017 Nebulas Conference in Pittsburgh over the weekend with fellow writers Chris M. Rose, Jeremy Gottwig, and Doug Dluzen. It was the first time for all of us, going to the Nebulas. What followed was four days of socializing with other writers and editors in.

Back to Regularly Scheduled Program (I Hope)

I’m back. I have to admit I knew I hadn’t written a post in a while. Hell, I hadn’t written anything in a while. Part of it was shifting my priorities to make sure several other personal goals were met, part was not feeling ready to write a post, or.

Another Acceptance!

I’m glad to say my first pro sale, “Clown Car, Driven Once, Never Emptied” has been accepted for production in the Tales to Terrify podcast! It should be available to hear sometime in April or May. This story first appeared in Unlikely Story’s “Clowns: the Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix” at the.

2016 Award Eligibility & Recommendations

I had mentioned in a previous post that I had several things I was thankful for in 2016. Most of what I’ve been thankful for are my stories published this year. Eligible Work All of my eligible work in 2016 is short fiction: First, my story, “Clown Car, Driven Once, Never.

Giving Thanks in 2016

It seems odd to give thanks for 2016. I mean, this was the year we lost David Bowie. The year Prince died. The year many of us sat dismayed at the results of the U.S. Presidential elections. It would seem that there’s little to give thanks for in 2016. On.

Achievement Unlocked: New Market Cracked!

I’m glad to announce my story, “Emergency Evaluation of Penny Ante, as Recorded by Cal-Q-Tron of the Benevolent Order of Heroes” sold to Galaxy’s Edge! I’m still reeling by how quickly the editor, Mike Resnick, responded, but I’m overjoyed my funny story about performance evaluations and superheroes finally found a.
