This week I am the featured author at Sniplits. For one week (beginning today) my story Fear Factor will be available, as an audio download (MP3), for free.
Brought to life by character voice actor Malcolm Rothman, it is simply the best reading I've ever heard of any of my stories. His reading, which is really a performance, reminds me of Jim Dale's recordings of the Harry Potter novels. He brings the characters to life with their own distinct voices, while selling the jokes with professional comic timing.
Here is Sniplits' summary:
Fear Factor By Kevin Anderson When Nog the dragon tries to put his destructive ways behind him, the Guild of Magical Creatures is not amused.
It runs about 24 minutes - http://www.sniplits.com/

Good evening Kevin,
We here at 2M Magazine have read over your story and have decided to pass. This one was discussed more than any of our other submissions, debated for quite a while before we came to a conclusion....
...it really came down to one simple deciding factor: If we have to convince ourselves we should take it then we shouldn't. The story should convince us, not each other. Thank you for submitting to 2M Magazine and feel free to do so again.

I don't think I've sold anything this year yet and we are already in March. Oh, well. Tomorrow is another day.
