It's been a very dry year as far as story acceptances go. I've managed to get a few things on shortlists and so on but nothing has made it through to acceptance. Then this morning I woke up to news that my short-story "Dead on the Doorstep" has been accepted by Kaleidotrope for publication some time next year.
This will be my first non-Australian sale, so I'm extra happy about it. For those with long memories, it's the story that I originally wrote for After the Rain but ran out of time to finish before the submissions closed. I'm glad it found a good home!
I should also point out that this will be my second comic Zombie piece to be published. Perhaps I've found my niche?
