Barrelhouse Magazine has posted excerpts from the upcoming issue, one of which is from my short story, The Tick. Read them here.
The upcoming issue of Barrelhouse will contain the first story I’ve ever gotten published. It is called The Tick, and it is about a tick.
And some humans.
And their interaction.
That is all.
It’s taken me a while to write this since I’ve been busy with novel revisions and starting a new job, but I now have an agent! I signed with Caitlin Blasdell of Liza Dawson Associates. She will be representing my bronze age epic fantasy novel about class war and sheep-pigs.
Writing novels is all I’ve wanted to do for pretty much my entire life, so you can imagine how excited I am. It still does not feel completely real. Of course, I still have to actually sell a book, but that suddenly seems like a much more realistic prospect than it ever has before. It has gone from dream to possibility, and the path from here to actuality is made up of work.
So back I go to work.
