Well there goes my New Year's resolution to Blog at least once a month. Jeez, what is it, April already? Oh, well, its not the first of my resolutions to last as long as a Red Shirt in a Star Trek episode. Anyway, on with the show.

Earlier this year my story Damaged, was published in an anthology from Gothic City Press. The collection is called Conviction: Anthology of the Con. It came out quietly in January, so much so that I didn't even know it was out until March. It's available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback.

A flash story I wrote called The Fall of The Feast will appear later this year in the pages of Barnyard Horror, an anthology with four legs from James Ward Kirk fiction. And Dark Moon Digest will run my story How to Mount Fairies for Display in their special Young Adult Issue coming out this summer, fall, or winter, I don't really know. But this sale was kind of a victory for me as I have been trying to get this piece in print for a while. Based on the stories sick and juvenile sense of humor, adult markets kept passing on it. But the first time I pitched it into the Young Adult market, bingo. Can't believe I've been doing this for as long as I have and sometimes I still forget the most basic of rules. The submission must fit the market.  

On May 16th, (on the night before the new Star Trek film is to be released) my co-author, Sam Stall, and I will be interviewed LIVE on WGSO 990am, a radio station in New Orleans. The show, which is new to the station, is called, This Week in Geek, and host David Ducorbier would like to discuss our book, Star Trek, Zombies, and all things geeky. I believe the show will be turned into a podcast later on for those not in the New Orleans area. I'll post more details when I have them.

Lastly, a fellow across the pond has been applying Zombie makeup, wearing a TNG Starfleet uniform, and calling himself Zombie Riker. I've been intrigued by his Facebook page and convention pictures, so I sent him an email and asked if he would submit to an interview. Well, Zombie Riker said yes, and I'll post that Q & A next time. Until then - QAPLA!
