Pro Sale!

I’m excited to share my first professional short fiction sale. My science fiction story “I Love You More” will appear in Galaxy’s Edge Magazine, edited by Mike Resnick.

This is a huge step for me in my writing career. I’m very thrilled to have landed my first sale at the professional level and I hope to share other sales of the same caliber with you soon.

Short Fiction Sale

I made a short fiction sale to ARTPOST Magazine. They’re a new publication that paid .04 a word for my science fiction story – solidly in the semi-pro market scene but also the most I’ve been paid for a story to date. “A Letter to the People of Earth” is a flash piece considering what it might be like if aliens gave humanity the choice of how we wanted to be invaded. It has some dark humor elements to it, I hope you will enjoy it. The story is due out in the July issue so I will post more details as the publication is released. Onto more projects!
