Mash Story short list!

I dabbled in flash fiction last month and submitted a piece to Mash Stories (mashstories.com). Much to my surprise, I was recently contacted by the editor to let me know my story made it to their short list and is in the competition for their quarterly prize! Fun! Here’s the link and if you feel like voting for it, that’d be awesome too! (Everything has votes now, right?)

Also, as a teaser, it began as a chapter in my modern re-telling of Jane Eyre which should be coming out this fall!

Captivate release day!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERABook 2 is now available on Amazon!

Survival is sanity, or so they say, but sixteen-year old Akemi has survived in such an unorthodox fashion that even her sister fears for her sanity. As part of an alien computer system, installed in a space station orbiting Earth, Akemi is both uniquely powerful and uniquely isolated.

When the space station explodes in the night sky, sabotaged by unknown enemies, Akemi survives yet again, but this time suspicion for the catastrophe falls upon her. Determined to discover who is truly responsible for the attack, Akemi and her sister set out to track the other suspects to a foreign world far from Earth.

Accompanied by capable Sam and irrepressible assassin Shara, they find themselves drawn into a political game with one of the most powerful aliens in the galaxy. With the perilous feeling that they are playing right into his hands, Akemi and her friends must uncover the truth about the sabotage without jeopardizing humanity’s fragile new status. Or exposing Akemi’s fragile existence.

Short story publication!

I got my first ‘real’ short story publication! It’s in Every Day Fiction, a once-a-day ezine type publication that I’ve been enjoying a lot lately.

I got paid three dollars for it (and opted to give that back to EveryDayFiction), but by golly I’m excited! However, and I feel real dumb about this – I missed it! Apparently it got published a few days after Christmas and I didn’t realize until nearly three weeks later. Then, I went over and looked at it, and more than a few of the comments were negative – apparently the ending of my short story didn’t make a lot of sense to my readers. 🙂

But you know, that’s okay. Getting real criticism is the only way to get better. (Cliche, but true.)

So: Hurray! Sort of. (I’m only human, after all!)
