141, 142, 143

Jesus, it's been a month since my last post! Sorry, folks. I've got three more additions to The One-Thousand to tell you about.

I started a writing band with Grant Stone and Dan Rabarts called Cerberus. We collaborate and hopefully bring out some things in each other that we wouldn't otherwise discover. Our first effort is called Dada. It's 141 of The One-Thousand and will eventually appear in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. I'll let you know when it's out. You may question whether a collaborative effort should count toward The One-Thousand. My rules at the beginning of this endeavor were pretty loose: To get in, it has to be a story that I submitted to an editor. That's pretty much it. This covers everything from Twitter fiction to my novel.

142 is Simon Says, a story for an anthology which Dan invited me to (he also invited Grant and many other people) called Baby Teeth, inspired by a post on Reddit about creepy things that kids say. There's a fundraising effort in place to publish the e-book, a print run, and an audiobook. Check that out here. All proceeds from the sale of these books go to Duffy Books in Homes, a literacy organization which gets books to kids, both creepy and non.

143 must remain incognito at the moment, as it's still making the rounds. I'll let you know more when I can.
