I submitted a flash fiction zombie story to Dr. Pus at Library of the Living Dead yesterday, for the soon to be published "Zombology IV" which is nothing but flash fiction. That means 500 words or less. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be! I had to do some MAJOR editing!!!! So, I am just waiting to hear back on whether or not he accepts it....nervous nail biting here, people.

On another note, I am in the process of reading Volumes 1-9 of "The Walking Dead" comics again, for the third time! They are just awesomely (new word there) good and well written! I have never bought the single issues as they come out, I just wait for the Volumes, which is hard to do! Volume 10 comes out in August, so that's my month, I guess. If you have never read them, drop what you are doing and go to the local comic store and get them, now! Be prepared to sequester yourself for about a day to get them read, if not more than that to re-read them again immediately after!

Geekin' Out

I am still totally hyped about getting a couple of my short stories published. One of my ambitions in life has always been to get something published. Now that is happening, I feel the need to bump it up a notch and start working on a book. I am just waiting for that idea or inspiration to come along. A lot of my ideas, as silly as it may sound, come to me in dreams! It's like my subconscious imagination works while I sleep and plants these seeds in my mind. Sometimes I forget them, so I am keeping a journal on my nightstand - just in case.
The thing is, I really need to devote time to writing. I mostly do it in spurts, just whenever I feel like it. I need to set aside time from my already horrendously busy schedule and just focus on writing. I also need to exercise, so ha ha, let's see how that goes!
Anyhow, I had a great busy weekend. I love living in Louisiana - Mardi Gras parades are so awesome! It's an all day party just to act crazy for 2 hours to try to get people to bean you with cheap pieces of plastic! Where else can you do that? You tell me.

Be on the lookout for "Zombology" from Library of the Living Dead Press, in late March/early April 2009! It will be available on as well as some other online booksellers! Not only will there be lots of great zombie short stories, yours truly will have one in there! Yep, Dr. P decided to put "Every Rose..." in it! He will also be releasing a "Zombology 2" later, and that will have "Release" in it, which is another short story I wrote.
I am super-duper excited about this - my first published work! It's really motivating me to write more.
I don't know what kind of response I will get, because it is my first published work and probably not all that great. I can already hear the criticisms....I guess I am just being a pessimist. Ugh!
