New short story acceptance!

I’ve been quiet on the blogging front because I’ve been overseas for a month (travelling Iceland, London and Spain. More on this in later posts). On the way overseas, in Heathrow airport in fact, I received an acceptance email for my fantasy/horror short story, The Washer Woman’s Favourite. I’m really fond of this messed up beast of a Venetian story inspired by a wonderful Topdeck tour I did of Italy when I was twenty.

The Washer Woman’s Favourite comes out in the inaugural Aussie Speculative Fiction Anthology November 24th 2018. You can pre-order a copy of the anthology for a mere 99c USD here. If you’re in Melbourne, the book launch is 24th November (details TBA). If you can’t get to Melbourne, the online launch is found on Facebook here. Meanwhile, check out the gorgeous cover art below:


Wow. That’s three short stories I’ve had picked up for anthologies this year. Next year, I can’t wait to try and beat this number 😉

PS: I’ve had a lot of writer news this year, so will blog about Hard Copy and Conflux in coming weeks.
