The folks at Viable Paradise Writing Workshop announced a new scholarship today. Good on them! Perhaps I can throw a few bucks in the jar.
The outpouring of support from various graduates reminded me of the oath I swore that chilly day in 2012. I raised my hand and pledged that:
“…I will write
That I will finish what I have written
That I will send it out
To paying markets only
Until Hell won’t have it.”
In that spirit, I’m happy to announce my short story, “The Astrologer of the Fifth Floor,” sold today to the Abandoned Places anthology from Shohola Press. Twenty-one other publications rejected it.
Looks like Hell doesn’t get this one.
