Doing a happy dance, since my story "Jumping the Rails" has been accepted for the anthology Dreams of Steam II: Of Brass and Bolts. The story is a follow-up to "Dead Man's Hand" but with new characters, so it's not exactly a sequel. As soon as I know more about the anthology, so will you. Congrats to everyone else who made it into the collection!
Status of Other Stories: My time travel story and my stupid, stupid cat story are currently floating out there in the wild; I eagerly await rejections. My kayaking story is still festering in its first draft compost heap - maybe I'll polish it off this month and fire it into the submission gauntlet. I'm finally back into The Blood Prayer - draft 10, I think - and it's going slowly, but well.
That's all for now. Have fun blowing shit up on the 4th!
