My story Pilgrims is in the issue of Beneath Ceaseless Skies that came out this morning; there's also audio for those who are interested. (I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.)

It's a Pennsic story, by which I mean a product of that phenomenon in which one goes to Pennsic and sits in a couple classes with people talking about interesting medieval cultural things one hadn't run across before, and then comes home, starts typing, and finds oneself pausing to read plot summaries of Marie de France tales on wikipedia in search of suitably era-appropriate Drama.

(Also, for those few of you who've read The Witch, the Weaver, and the Wood, this takes place about 200 years previous, a few countries south and east.)

I now own an actual book with my name and a little bit of my actual work in it, not to mention actual work from several other people I know. And I took far more than my share of time reading my story aloud at the book launch (most of the readers were restricted to 5 minutes, on account of not being in this print volume) and signed other people's books in brightly colored pen. Madness.

Now I need to go read the rest of Ansa and the Lost Thing.

Also, and only semi-relatedly, I've got myself on several people's lists for the month of writing letters, so in quest for universal fairness, anyone who would like a Thing mailed through the mails, please say! (And message or e-mail me your address if I haven't got it.) I make no promises for actual letters, but I will send you something interesting and even attempt not to let the Megatherium chew on it first.

Look at that-- I've got a new story up at Beneath Ceaseless Skies this morning. You can read it here.

Interestingly, shortly after I wrote this one, I was digging out ridiculous quantities of daffodils from the back garden that no longer exists, and turned up a clear glass marble with little threads of white color running through it rather the way I'd imagined the cracks in the one from the story. (When it turns up again, perhaps I'll add a picture.)

(This does not mean I'm going to give up writing anything else on superstitious grounds.)

Sea Charm, now available on the Daily Science Fiction website.

They sent me the acceptance letter the day before I got the one for VP. Bios were written and a contract was signed, and then there was a long silence broken by a final chance at minor display edits the week I got back from VP. Also, while you're over there, you wouldn't do badly to check out the recent things from my fellow alums: [profile] f_wilde's Everlasting, [profile] alecausten's Volition, or John Shade's Selecting.

Speaking of milestones over which one has no control, this pro rate thing is sort of neat. Not that the amount of effort involved is really equivalent (those of you who still think publishing is a good road to fame and fortune will now go write "I am delusional" 100 times on the blackboard) but I have gotten smaller paychecks from jobs that involved going in and doing boring stuff in person. I couldn't pay my mortgage off this, of course, but it might keep me in bread and peanut butter for a nice long time.

Xposty from dreamwidth, but yes, I'm still here.

My short story "Sealskin" appears in this month's Crossed Genres magazine, under my maiden name (in the interests of giving myself permanent multiple personality confusion.) You should all go read it. :)

Happy New Year; retrospectives and possibly goals to follow at a later time.
