The Last Repairman

Here's some nice news - my science fiction story, The Last Repairman is set to be published on the Daily Science Fiction Website on Friday May 9th, 2014.  It will also be distributed to their 8,500 subscribers on the very same day.

Today I am doing line edits of the manuscript.  I've been through the thing twice now and haven't found a mistake.  That speaks to the editing I did before sending it to DSF but also to their editorial process.  They've been through the thing and cleaned up typos.  I'll have my usual editor (my eagle-eyed wife) read through the proofing manuscript, too.  The more eyes the better.

I'm very excited about this particular publication.  With a subscriber base of 8,500 and access to anyone with a web browser, this story has more opportunity to reach readers than any of my previous publications.

Also in the news, I recently sold the audio rights for The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife (published in Tesseracts Seventeen (Edge, 2013)) to Escape Artist Inc to be podcast on their horror podcast website.  .  The story will be read by a professional voice actor and will feature the story towards the end of August 2014.
