I heard back from one of the editors I sent a short story submission to. My story, "The Last Temptation," will be coming out on Mirror Dance Fiction at the end of May. As usual, I will post a link to the story. I'm still waiting to hear back from the other place.

Other than that, I've been very slowly working on my zombie novel. Hopefully, I will have a draft done by the end of the year. That's being very pessimistic, I know, but I don't have unlimited amounts of time to work on it! Damn this real life getting in the way of fun!

I recently heard from the publisher of my novel, and I am supposed to get back the edited version by the end of June. I hoping that means it should be out by this fall. As usual, I will keep you posted!

Other than that, I have a story under consideration that I'm hoping will be accepted in the next couple of days. I had to do some rewriting, but the editor likes my new version. I'll let you know on that also!

I read on MSN this morning that zombies are making a come back. I guess there are a few films coming out, and Max Brooks' book (say that three times fast!), "World War Z," is going to be one of them. I haven't read that one, but I read his "Zombie Survival Guide," which was very interesting. The reason I bring this up is because I was planning on writing a zombie book. I kind of put it on the back burner, though, because I wasn't sure if there was a market for it. Now that I know there is, perhaps I should get my butt in gear!
