AIN'T 2 PROUD 2 BEG

I have finished "Yoga Girls." The final installment was posted earlier today. You can find it here. At that link, also, is a bit of panhandling from yours truly. If you enjoyed the serial, consider leaving me a tip. I will also accept books on how to write short stories, because I have a sneaking suspicion that I suck at them.

It's only Tuesday and I've already been cramming a lot of work in. Yesterday was a bunch of printing and prepping for new short story submissions and agent/publisher queries. Some things in publisher listings in various Writer's Markets amuse me in nerdy ways. Like, how can you publish something so niche specific as books about American ex-patriots with particular attention made to ones who have moved to Mexico and then advise writers not to write for a specific market. It seems to me that publisher's very lifeblood depends on people trying to appeal specifically to their very teeny-tiny market...doesn't it?

Been working on a promotional interview for the Oni site and their new and improved group blog-style Buzz section. It's with Chynna Clugston and Ian R. Shaughnessy about their book Strangetown. I'll post when it's up in the next couple of days.

Now, for a mini diversion:

It seems to me they are very accurate on the subject of my personality, but woefully ignorant when it comes to anywhere I'd actually want to rest my head.
