Some writing news, for a change. I have a story, "The Ogre's Brown-Eyed Daughter" in Lackington's 5, along with long-time Anticiworkshop Comerade-in-Arms acwise. It's the first time we've shared a ToC and I'm really happy with that, with the issue, the artwork, especially the piece for my story.

I wish I had the rights to show it to you. It's eerie how much the person in the photo matches a person in real life I modelled the character on. The story is a pastiche of the lives of a couple of people I know, and my own, and some stories about growing up with self-centered parents who tangle you up in their personal drama. I actually sat on it for over a couple of years before submitting it, which broke a rule for me, since I try to get stories out the door ASAP. It was hard to write, and it's still hard to read, but I'm glad it's out there now, having a life of its own.

It's wonderful to finally be sharing a ToC with you! We'll have to do it more often. :)

I think that's a splendid idea. I'll work on that one.

Is this one of those Canadian-only digital rights things? I can't seem to connect; Gumroad says "page not found."

Hmmm.. Looked at it and asked the publisher to fix the links. I think it's a URL problem. Here's the right links:
