For those of you that want to read me, well now you can! The Absent Willow Review has just published a story I wrote, Preacher at the End of the World. Oddly enough it is published under the “horror” genre, though I always thought of it as science fiction. Doesn’t matter. Comes with a nice piece of art- one of the perks of publishing with TAWR, really great art.
So I won’t go on. If you want to know a little bit more about TAWR, check out my interview with its co-founder Rick DeCost. Just so you know, interviewing the co-founder got me not a spec of special treatment. I think I submitted about twenty stories before I finally got one in, and one in twenty ain’t bad. There is an axiom in physics, if something is remotely probable, then it is inevitable. Submit enough and you will get published, eventually.
One last word before I conclude this short post so you can read my story and then option the screenplay rights (which I still have if anyone is interested…), this story came out of my “stories I hate file.” I was going through said file several months after having committed the story to oblivion when I realized that I really liked the story, as much as anything I was actively shopping. I sent it to Absent Willow first and they accepted it. So go read. Check out the other stories in the issue, the editors over there rarely make a mistake in their picks, but check out mine first. It’s at the top. Ha!!
