My Story Mostly About Bugs [20 Jun 2016|06:48am]

I mentioned:

A few weeks ago that I was going to have a story called "The Precession of the Equinoxes" in the anthology Gods With Fur edited by Fred Patten and published by Furplanet.

Well, the books's up for pre-order now and will be shipping after its debut at Anthrocon, the big annual anthropomorphic animal fan convention taking place July 4th weekend in Pittsburgh. So if you wanna reserve a copy, now's your chance!

Let me also mention that this is a story I wrote as part of my on-going involvement with The Writeoff Association, a lovely and lively series of timed and prompted writing contests happening every three weeks or so. The contests go back and forth between accepting original fiction and My Little Pony fanfiction as well as between short stories and flash fiction (minifics, they call them).

The next one coming up is this weekend and will be for original short stories. You can register on the web site, then submit a prompt on Wednesday, vote for your favorites of the submitted prompts on Thursday, start writing on the prompt with the most votes on Friday, and submit your story 72 hours later. The stories appear in a gallery with no author names attached, and folks comment, critique, and rank their preferences over the next week. Those ranked by the reader and writers in the top third or so move on to the final voting which takes place over the next four days, and the results are then posted on the site.

If that sounds like fun, I highly recommend it.

Ah, Summertime:

Well, technically that's tomorrow or the next day or something. But never let it be said that we're all technically minded 'round these parts!
