And here's some more good news. A few days ago, I had the good fortune to have sold my short vampire story "In Vino Veritas" to Fear & Trembling. I don't have the publication date yet, but will let you know when I do, and I'll update this news post.
And speaking of drink (vino), I'm off out now to enjoy a glass or two with some good friends. I doubt very much that I'll be doing any writing this weekend, given that I'll be participating in my stag-do, although as with all things in life, a writer should look on traumatic events and happenings as something to be endured and to be treated as potential story-fodder.... Wish me luck, and expect me to write sometime soon a dark tale of a stag-do gone wrong!
