Balance in All Things

This morning brought a pleasant email from the editor at Darwin's Evolutions, who has decided to publish my novelette 'Big T'. This could be in an anthology, as a stand-alone e-book or both – that's up to the publisher – but whatever his choice may be, I'm mighty pleased. Big T was a finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest, and has been passed on to editors by slush readers several times, so I never doubted it would find a good home some day. Today was that day.

And, for the sake of balance in all things, I received a nice rejection from AE Scifi in the afternoon. But who cares? ;-)

Thank you. In my book, all sales are nice, but I'm glad this story's finding a good home.

Good story you have on DSF, btw. Nice subtle humor :-)

I read DSF most days, but for some reason I missed this one when they sent it out (they did do that, right?) I'm glad you posted that link :-)

Yes, they emailed it out on 21 April. I know because I've seen some reviews posted on that date.

Thanks! It's always nice when your work is appreciated--even if you'd do it regardless. I don't think I could stop writing altogether, even if there wasn't a market for fiction.
