Ending 2006

It's the last day of 2006, so I'll end it on a good note, personally:

Firstly, I have sold my story, 'The Funeral, Ruined' to E. Sedia for her anthology Moonlit Domes: The Anthology of Urban Fantasy. It should be a cool book, and the story is another Red Sun piece, and is basically my companion piece to 'The Souls of Dead Soldiers are for Blackbirds, Not Little Boys', which offers a character from the other side of the war that is mentioned in that. I used the same narrative style of mixing two voices (letters and a third person narrator), and I figured if you liked that first one, chances are you'll dig this one. The book will be out some time in 2007, and as always, I'll put the link through here.

And, secondly, for all book related selling matters, I am represented by the Scribe Agency. They make their own beer and name it after their authors, but hopefully they shall make me tequila, for I have never really liked beer.

I am concerned with the important things, as you can see.

Anyhow:

That's it for 2006. Wherever you are, have a nice New Year, and I'll see you all on the other side.

Best New Year to you, Ben! Great to blog bounce, you've been one of the most amusing and intelligent voices I've found this year, and you're book was fuckin' good too.

Oh, and I want to be represented by them! Fuckin' cool agents! (... despite my passionate disdain for all things Sara Douglass)

Good news altogether.

I might knock on the door over at Scribe myself, as they're ex-Frenkel folks; Jim repped me before he quit agenting to return solely to editing, and I believe Kris at least has dealt with me.

they seem like alright guys, from my limited exposure to them. worth a knock, at any rate.

Happy New Year
...and all that shit. I don't like beer either. I'm searching for a publisher that have a Shepard brand sour mash whiskey.

Re: Happy New Year
thanks, man. happy new year to you, as well. you should have the sour mash thing written into your next contact.
