The week before last I made my first short story sales. Although both sales were at ‘pro rates’, they were short shorts, and so aren’t going to allow me to jet off into the sunset just yet.
The first, a piece of Twitter fiction was published by @thaumatrope. If you like stories of fewer than 140 characters, I suggest you follow them immediately. If you want to dig through their timeline to find my story, they published it on February 21st.
The other, somewhat longer story, is being published by Pseudopod and will appear in their podcasts closer to Christmas. The story they’re producing is ‘Hoofprints In The Snow’ which was originally a Minigloam on In The Gloaming and was part of the Black Static Advent Calendar.
