Aoife’s Kiss #35, December 2010… (12th acceptance!)

Hello, and congratulations to the New Orleans Saints for winning Super Bowl 44.  Here was a place that went through a lot five years ago, and I can’t think of a team and city that deserves it more.   Yes, I was rooting for you guys while I was in Atlantic City.  Now on to SF, Fantasy, and the Post-Apocalypse.  I just watched The Road last night; what a terrible movie that was.  Don’t fear, I’ll have a better story than that coming to the December 2010 issue of Aoife’s Kiss (What, better than the Cormac McCarthy you say?).  Published quarterly by Sam’s Dot Publishing, Aoife’s Kiss is edited by Tyree Campbell.  This will either mark my 12th or 13th acceptance into the magazine’s print and former Web component.  A lot of stories are being held onto at the moment, so I’ll know more over the course of the year.  Check out a few sample issues below with stories of mine in them.  And speaking of roads, we’re on the Road to 400 credits!

Personally, I recommend trying out either the June 2009 or September 2009 issues.  Both had decent stories, the issues sold out and they were bestsellers more than two, three times over.  Those two issues in particular had to be reprinted over three times! All available at The Genre Mall: www.genremall.com

Aoife’s Kiss #31, December 2009… (Now Available!)

It’s my 11th story appearance within the folds of Sam’s Dot Publishing’s magazine, Aoife’s Kiss.  This would be the December 2009 issue, a pretty funky cover.  This issue also features Ken Goldman.  No. 31.  Interesting fact about the magazine: the title comes from Irish.  After all these years, I didn’t even know that.  However, if you love science fiction and adventure stories, you definitely can’t go wrong with a copy.

Sam’s Dot Publishing: “Convention Calendar Early 2009…”

This comes a little bit late, but Sam’s Dot Publishing books and magazines will be available at the conventions just below.  Aoife’s Kiss, Beyond Centauri, Sounds of the Night, Champagne Shivers, and more! I would say once the April conventions hit, you can ask for FRESH BLOOD (my latest collection).  It should be available then.  They publish a whole array of wonderful periodicals, novellas, and other genre fare.

As for myself, due to the recent woes of the U.S. economy, I probably won’t be leaving the Northeast anytime soon.  But I will be walking the floor of this year’s FANGORIA Weekend of Horrors.  If you see me, stop me.  Say hi.  I’ll be representing a bunch of publishers and handing out free merch! Also, now that the weather is getting nicer, I’ll be attending book fairs and book festivals, and hopefully the odd reading or two. 

More to come.

Sam’s Dot has come a long way in the last ten years, its authors being nominated for such awards as the Nebula, the Hugo, and the Bram Stoker.  Many a famous name have made a guest appearance there.  Most important, if you are a new writer, I am living proof that you can slowly work your way up the ladder and get a “book deal” or “payment” or things such as an “advance” or “publicist” for your efforts (bear with me, there’s a lot in the pipeline, and there are only twenty-four hours in a day).

I think this month’s “tuppence” column by SF award-nominated editor Tyree Campbell will be overlooked, and it’s such a terrible shame.  Especially for new talent.  Please, I urge you to read it and follow it with all your heart:

This is one way of becoming a WRITER…

This is being YOURSELF…

If someone tells you there is only one way to cross a street, well, you and I both know that that is ridiculous…
