Finished Neon Knight this morning.
It’s a 2,000-word short about Arthur’s round table and vampires and revenge.
How, you may ask, do those three things fit together? I’d tell you, but then I’d have to drain every last drop of blood from your struggling body. So why not wait and see if it finds a home.
I sent it off to the folks at Abyss & Apex. I’ll let you know what they say.
Meanwhile, I’m still working on Wayfarer. It’s one of those pieces that goes into the word processor kicking and biting. Not that I’m having trouble finding words, quite the opposite.
I’m writing it for a specific market — Beyond Ceaseless Skies — that has a preferred maximum count of 10,000 words. The story’s at 6,000 words so far, I’ve already cut it back twice, and the end isn’t in sight yet.
The characters in Wayfarer keep whispering to me that they want more. Greedy bastards. I’ll let you know who wins.
