At this point, I have confirmation that 4 of my 5 short stories written this year will be in anthologies coming out in the next 12 months. Yay! I’ll give more specific information as I get it, but right now this is what’s coming up for me:
“Heart’s Desire” in UNBOUND, edited by Shawn Speakman, from Grim Oak Press, December 2015-February 2016 (delivery of final edition from the press is still in the air, but I’ll update as we find out, but the ARC is out now);
“Drafty” in UPSIDE DOWN, edited by Jaym Gates and Monica Valentinelli, from Apex Book Company, “Fall/Winter 2015” (Kickstarter details to come);
“Spite House” (a Jo and Harper collaboration co-written with Catie Murphy) in URBAN ALLIES, edited by Joe Nassise, from Harper Voyager, July 26, 2016;
“Peacock in Hell” in SHADOWED SOULS, edited by Kerrie Lynn Hughes and Jim Butcher, from Ace/Roc November 1, 2016 (no link info yet).
One more short story I wrote this year may end up on the scrap heap through no one’s fault but mine, and I’m still working on one for another anthology that I was invited to recently. There’s also one more mosaic piece due to Christopher Golden for INDIGO. And sometime I need to decide which of the 10 novel projects I’m actually going to put my heart into and write with an eye to pestering publishers to pay me for it. (And Laura Anne Gilman may have bullied me into writing a novella about a certain annoying guy.)
And that’s the Publishing news from Katlandia!
