Three ups and one little downer

There are some really good things happening for my writing right now, all very encouraging.

First, In Fabula-divino the book is a reality! As you can see in the picture it's now a real physical book, with pages and everything!

The book was approved for printing in record breaking time. These are the proof copies, but the real thing is not far away.

In Fabula-divino will be available as an ebook (which is also a real book) on the 11 March. The paper versions will come out soon after this.

There are lots of thing planned for it's launch in a few days, including some giveaways, so keep an eye out.

Second, I have another story accepted for publishing. My shortest story ever, "Mouse" is going to be published in the June issue of AntipodeanSF. Antipodean SF is a monthly ezine of speculative flash fiction. It's really worthwhile subscribing to, it's a short fun read every month.

Third, I've finally received my copy of the, "81st Writer's Digest Writing Competition Collection". This book features the grand prize winner and winning entries of the ten categories in the competition. There were ten winners in each category and my story, "Leprechaun Tours Australia" came in seventh in the children's/young adult category. This is the little downer, I thought all the winning stories, including mine, were going to be published, but only the first place stories are in the book. The other winning stories are just listed in the back. It's good to be listed.
