On other fronts, no word yet on any of the stories out looking for homes. I’ve got a couple of stories with first readers looking for issues, but nothing quite ready to go. Two others with a third draft in progress and still other things in the pipe. Starting to wonder if this is taking too much of my time, but I’ve got too many stories I need to get out of my skull and can’t really slow down. The goal is fifteen submissions by the end of the year. Wish me luck.
