Submissions & replies – A sticky

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;

October 2012
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

January 2013
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.

February 2013

  1. Hi Matthew!
    Thrilled to meet you on twitter! All the fight scenes in my award winning thrillers were informed several martial artists, so I’m keen to see how you think in your own fight scenes. Hugs.
