Off it goes

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.

  1. Thanks, Diane.

    This is my second submission to Abyss & Apex. The first story was rejected but I received some great feedback from them. I’m doing a substantial reworking of it, in part based upon that feedback.

  2. Well, good luck to you with your reworking. I submitted to Abyss & Apex a couple times and was rejected, but I found them to be very positive. I submitted once to Beyond Ceaseless Skies and got a say-nothing form rejection.
