Surprising Stories, January 2009… (appearances)

Didn’t catch my Sci-Fi love story, A Virtual Affair, the first time around…? Well, you can always read it again before it goes into retirement.  Below in the January 2009 issue of SURPRISING STORIES.  Edited by John and Eric Thiel.  This well-received story would be one of the final 30 hobbyist venues which will feature work of mine over the next twelve months.

My New Years Resolution was to retire from many a small venue, with 350 publishing credits as rocket fuel, and see where I can take these crazy horror stories and science fiction-cluttered thoughts of mine.  And while I will still be an integral part of the Small Press, I’ve decided to take a leave of absence from the hobby press to search for a little more.   As I invest over four hours per day into a new novella with “true” emotion and real, identifiable characters, make up marketing materials and get ready for the premiere of my first short story collection, and outline fresh ideas for a hopefully pro-paying anthology, I really can’t wait to see what this year off from shorter work brings.  In the meantime, please, enjoy what the publication above has to offer.

I’ll add SF Crowsnest to Author Resources.  Other than that, over the past three weeks I’ve nabbed another six story acceptances for various publications throughout 2009.
