9794, Bad site member...

...is me. Horribly inactive and, more than that, horribly not sharing. Actually, I got into a mode of being afraid to hype stuff in case it didn't happen, and then I got busy and...the upshot is I haven't told you guys ANY of my good news.

Which makes me a really bad site member, although anyone who reads my blog knows some of it.

So, here we go:

1. I've been hired by QEW Comics to script a graphic novel, Stripped, which should see print release some time in 2013.

2. My science fiction novel, Transpecial, has been taken up by Musa Publishing with a scheduled release as an ebook late 2013.

3. My short story, 'The Skeptic', has been purchased...

...by ANALOG.

See? I'm a TERRIBLE site member.

Eh, you're busy being a real writer. That's being a good site member because you're setting a great example. And what a fantastic result :). Congrats on the Analog sale, the novel sale, and the graphic novel contract. You're doing great.

755-day acceptance from Analog Science Fiction & Fact on August 29. Congratulations, Jennifer Povey!

Just noticed this on duotrope. 755 days?! is there a story behind that?

It got a hold request. Then slipped through the cracks when they changed from paper submissions to electronic. I had to chase it up multiple times before it was straightened out.

Querying after a reasonable amount of time is always a good idea.

(I wish Duotrope reported my byline correctly. But I even have editors who drop the middle initial. Annoying).
