I emailed my novel yesterday. Now, I just have to wait and see what type of time frame I 'm looking at before it gets published. I know that it has to go through another editing process and they'll create a cover, so I assume it will be in the next few months.

Other than that, I've finished a couple of short stories that have been sent in for consideration for publication. I hope to hear back from one by the end of the week. The other won't be until Feb. 1. I am attempting to work on some other short stories, but things keep getting in the way. I'm planning on going on hiatus for a few months at the end of January, but I will let you know when I get back into the swing of things!

I received some very exciting news yesterday. The Cynic Online Magazine has named my story Sohei as one of their Best of 2008. Here is the email:

If you haven't read it yet, now is the time. It is the third story in a series of four, and my favorite. I'm glad that someone else shares my opinion! If you would like to access the story, it is available here: http://cynicmag.com/bestof.asp?articleid=2520

Other than that, I have a short story that has come out in NVF Issue 2#. It is entitled "Life After the Undead." If you'd like to check it out, it is available here:

So far, 2009 is looking good! My novel is supposed to be coming out soon, but my publisher has been ill, so I don't have an exact date. I will keep you informed!
