So Pithead Chapel turned me down. It’s a polite albeit clinical refusal, but I’m sure they’re very busy. “Soon” is apparently a tough sell, but I can’t say I’m altogether surprised. I’m still pushing it through my list. The Cincinnati Review is next and we’ll see what we get out of it!
Also, I’ve begun to think about a massive project that will take years to undertake, and here’s why: It’s a compilation! 😀
This will probably be a self-pub opportunity, as I really want full say on what makes it into my compilations and what doesn’t. This means it will be an ebook, almost certainly published through Smashwords, and Natalie and I will go through and decide things like whether I’m going to publish only short stories or whether a novella or a chapter from a novel will also be considered. I’ll put something up here, and on Facebook, and I will say that there is an opportunity for fan recommendations, so if there’s a chapter or work of mine you think ought to be honored by being set into this compilation, you can let me know! I’m even considering taking some of my fan fiction and adapting it to non-fandom related in order to actually include it in the compilation. So if you read my fan fiction, that’s up for grabs as well!
So keep your eyes peeled for more news/information on this, and if I can’t get something published via traditional channels, it may/probably will be in the compilation! 😀
Thoughts on this? Advice? Personal anecdotes? Leave a comment! 😀
