This is going to be a post that I update as and when I Submit, and when I get replies (positive or negative, they will still go on). Now that I’ve finished the first Shattered Lands novel, have started the second, and have a few others brewing in the background, this is the year that I will try my hardest to become a published steampunk/science fiction/fantasy author
So far, I have submitted;
A proposal regarding a futuristic steampunk story regarding pirates, that is set on a volcanic world where the humans practically have to live in the clouds. This was part of the Abaddon Books open window. – Rejected
A short story to Interzone – I actually had to print this, and post it. Felt very strange indeed, as I can honestly say I cannot remember the last time I posted anything not work related.
A proposal to an agency for Shattered Lands: Torquemaster RIsing. Again, I have had to print off a number of pages – 50, to be exact – and post them for consideration by their reader. – Rejected
A short story titled ‘Death’s Messengers’ for the ‘Grimm and Grimmer’ short story collection by Fringe Works. – Accepted!
An expression of interest in for ‘The Moriarty Paradigm’ a Steampunk Sherlock Holmes project by Fringe Works.
The Enlightened Soldier – A submission for the Fringe Works Andromeda’s Offspring Anthology
Bluttrinker – A submission for the Fringe Works Raus! Untoten! anthology
Well and Truly Sporked – A submission for the Fringe Works Potatoes Anthology
Looking Back – A submission for the Fringe Works Dead Men’s Tales anthology
