I just got an acceptance notice from Corvid Queen for a brand new fairy tale retelling! “The Farmer’s Beautiful Daughter” is set to post in mid-April.
“Real People,” a short experimental piece, has also found a home with Tales to Terrify. It will be recorded as a podcast and released later this year–more information on that once they have a scheduled post-date!
The cover art has finally dropped for Reading 5×5!
Release date for Reading 5×5 has been set as March 5th! I’m very pleased with how this project turned out–lots of variation in all genres, and lots of variation in all the briefs!
The Literary Whip is a great podcast that lets editors dig deep into why a piece didn’t make the cut for publication, even though they loved it, or it was strongly considered, or a million other reasons. It’s a rare look into the final rounds of constructing a special issue or putting a finer edge on a publication’s voice, and I’m thrilled this piece was selected for the podcast.
Take a listen and see for yourselves!
I just got my finalized draft in to the Reading 5×5 crew, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finalized version in just a week or two. The art’s gorgeous, the project’s great, and we’ll be unleashing this thing on the world by the end of January.
