Published in A is for Apocalypse, L is for Leverage

Today is the launch day for A is for Apocalypse!

What do you get when you take twenty-six amazing writers, randomly assign them a letter of the alphabet and give them complete artistic freedom within a theme?

A is for Apocalypse

A is for Apocalypse contains twenty-six apocalyptic stories written by both well-known and up-and-coming writers. Monsters, meteors, floods, war–the causes of the apocalypses in these tales are as varied as the stories themselves.

This volume contains work by Ennis Drake, Beth Cato, Kenneth Schneyer, Damien Angelica Walters, K. L. Young, Marge Simon, Milo James Fowler, Simon Kewin, C.S. MacCath, Steve Bornstein and more!

My story is the letter L, but since it’s day one I’m not giving away the full title yet. I’ll update this post with it later. Updated now that B is for Broken is out 🙂

Cover Reveal: A is for Apocalypse

I’m excited about this anthology, as I think the concept is a lot of fun, and I enjoyed writing my story to meet it. We’re still not at release date yet, but I can share the cover, at least!

W1S1 2012, NaNo Draft, and a Merit Badge

W1S1 2012, NaNo Draft, and a Merit Badge

I didn’t do my W1S1 update at the end of November, because I’d spent most of my time on NaNo. Then in December, I spent it on other things (holidays are inherently distracting), or on trying to sort through the manuscript as it sat after Camp NaNo and NaNo. There doesn’t seem to be much point in putting up a pretty graphic, given how little progress I made on the short story revisions.

I’d made up my mind not to do W1S1 this year, but then I got an invite to the new Google+ community and accepted, so on that I’m easy to sway, apparently. I expect to follow along quietly, though, as I’m not exactly going to be following the rules. I want to get through my revisions at this point more than I want to be adding to the to-do list. We’ll see how that goes for the next few months 🙂

Other than that, I will continue to sort through the NaNo draft, and figure out which parts of this story I’m keeping. I’ve been telling people it will be interesting to see what the word count is once I’m done hacking out all the things I changed my mind on.

While I don’t talk about it much here, I have a novel draft that I keep going back to, yet never finishing. It’s been rewritten at least four times; characters have been added, deleted, renamed, merged, split; the setting has been changed; and the world revised and sharpened.

And it’s still not right.

W1S1 Check-in: September

W1S1 Check-in: September

Another small update, I’m afraid.

Still, I have my first S for my W1S1 pieces!

Anything in yellow is marked up on paper, which means getting the changes and rewrites into the computer. It’s not as fast as I was hoping for when I started posting these, but I’ve still chugged through a decent amount. Enough that I’ve decided to snag another merit badge: Editing! ^_~

W1S1 Check-in: July

W1S1 Check-in: July

I have to admit, I avoid revision far more than I should. It’s harder to get over than I thought it would be. I don’t even have a NaNo to blame this time around.

My “accomplishment” this month was a quick run through to correct Echo Pen transcription. Somehow I’d forgotten I hadn’t moved most of these stories onto the computer yet >_<

W1S1 Check-in: June

W1S1 Check-in: June

I managed the story and submission for this month, so that’s a good thing.

However, it occurred to me part way through that perhaps a month where most of my time would be spent grinding out a novel draft was perhaps not the best one to be setting an additional revision goal.
