Not bad for one year, eh? This doesn't include all of the stuff I've contracted but not yet finished. When I look back on it, I am pretty damn pleased with myself. Here are some more metrics:

• Stories submitted: 27 (goal: 15) = 10 acceptances, 13 rejections, 4 unknown.
• New stories written: 10 (goal: 12)
• RPG projects: 7 (goal: 6)
• Books read: 50 (goal: 50)

You know what's funny? I can't tell if I'm missing anything.

My record holds. Every zombie story I write, I sell. To be fair, that's only three zombie stories. Mostly because I don't like zombies. I'm not one of those people who likes to dress up as a zombie and do zombie walks. Those things make me want to run in fear. Let my friends do that sort of thing. I'll be back here in my apocalyptic bunker being paranoid.

So, this third zombie story sale is one that is very, eh, strange. You see, the anthology is about zombie erotica. Yep. For real. My story, "Swallow It All", is actually a revenge zombie erotica story because that's just how the story came out: sexy and then very violent.

My previously sold zombie fiction is: "A Bite to Remember" for "The World is Dead" anthology by Permuted Press, and "Nothing Left to Salvage" for Wily Writers and a reprint to Zombonauts by Library of Horror.

So, there you have it. I think I'm going to call this one my strangest story sale to date.

Since I was asked to do this for the Wily Writers group, I figured it could not hurt to put my 2009 writing industry accomplishments here.

My science fiction story "Nothing Left to Salvage" is now up on Wily Writers. Feel free to listen (or read) and comment.

Nothing Left to Salvage
Esda and Seairth believe they have found the salvage of a lifetime. It is a derelict ship that promises riches and an easy life. What they find is a horror beyond imagining that will end their salvaging days forever. [16min]

Read by the fabulous Angel Lee McCoy aka [livejournal.com profile] angelmcc.

It is free to read or to listen to. I am very fond of this story. It is my "zombies in space" story and the second zombie story I've written/sold.

My science fiction story "Honoring the Dead" is now up on Wily Writers. Feel free to listen (or read) and comment.

Honoring the Dead
War is hell. No one knows that better that Guard Commander Waithe. What people do not talk about is the hell that comes after for those in command who survive. Not one to shirk his duty, Waithe performs his duty and honors his dead. (26 min, read by Nathan Crowder)

Damn... it sounds so good!
