So, yeah. That got your attention, didn’t it? 🙂
It’s with great pleasure that I can announce that my soft-SF flash story, “Blue Flame Burns the Hottest,” sold to Saturday Night Reader. (Warning: the site plays the sound of rain as soon as it loads. You may want to lower your volume or turn to mute if you’re in a public space.) It’s scheduled to appear on their site on Monday, May 25th, so I hope you’ll head over and check it out. Here on my blog, I’ll give a little extra tidbit about the story on publication day, so stay tuned.
In more good news, remember that wasp problem? Turns out, we may be in for a good solution to that, as well. It was pointed out that we’ve some gaps in our eaves that lead straight in to our attic (!!!–I know! This is insane!), and we are having them professionally filled with metal sheeting to exclude squirrels, etc, from clambering in and making their homes inside. And it turns out that one of these gaps is swarming with wasps. Which they are spraying to “subdue” before they seal up the gap. Presto–crazy wasp issue may be on the way to being solved! All because the extermination guy saw these gaps and suggested getting them filled. ^_^
And finally: it may be a touch quiet here for the next 10 or so days. My sister and her husband are coming to visit, and I’ll be busy being a human in the real world, and writing in the gaps. Which means that blogging and other online pursuits will take a back seat once more. When I return, I hope to have more fun things to share.
In the meantime, happy reading, and good writing!
