The Edge of Propinquity

I'm feeling much better about my January TEoP story, Caller ID: Unknown. It is sitting at about 3400 words. I want edit it down to about 3000 words for publication. I wrote the bulk of it yesterday. I'm doing some editing of it today and I will put the final polish on it tomorrow, the 5th, when it is due EOD. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to finish it in time and damned if I was going to tell my other authors that their stories were due EOD on the 5th and not meet that goal myself.

Also, the Edge of Propinquity LJ community t_e_o_p is open for members now. This is where we will make announcements about TEoP, notification of when the monthly issues are published and have general discussion on the story worlds and stories. All of the TEoP authors are on LJ and will participate in discussion as their time permits.

If you don't want to do that but do want the reminder of when the new TEoP issue is published, we also have a Yahoo Group that is for notification only. IE: Only I will be able to post on it and I only plan to use it to post when the new issue is up.

Black Gate

cmpriest! I just got Black Gate magazine, Issue #9. Your review is on page 201 and looks awesome. :) My editor wants to know if I have any other "new and rising" author recently published novels I can review. Know anyone willing to send me a book? Recommend anyone for me to review to pitch to my editor?

Two publications in the first week of the year is a fine way to start. I'm pretty happy.
