Yeah, Yeah

This blog has really turned into advertising the shit I'm in over the last two days, hasn't it?

It's pretty much the World Fantasy Con that has done it. I think, if I'm right, I'll be in two magazines, one anthology, and will have one book that will be available at the con, which is nearly everything I've had waiting to be published ('John Wayne (as Written by a Non-American' will be in the next Aurealis, from what I understand, and Black Sheep is next year). Which means this dumping of covers and pimpage will be over real soon, and we can go back to the regular thing, which is me struggling to sell fiction, and looking for a job.

Which, incidentally, is what I'm doing today. Well, not the looking. Today I am writing the cover letter for a few that I'm going to apply for, and getting everything together. I really could do without this part of my life, but what can you do, huh?

Employment: a totally and unnecessary waste of time.
