Ah, Damn.

Clarkesworld Magazine just rejected Dead Lovers in the most wonderful fashion. I'm not at all upset they rejected it, really, because it was a wonderful rejection. Not so much, "Oh, fuck, it got rejected." More like, "Oh, wow, that's really good on them to." And they are not screwing around about answering submissions within a week either, if anyone out here wants to run with them (scanner_darkly?). I have half a mind to send Finches to them. It's with IGMS though. Finches just has an appalling rejection rate... but I'm sure I read something somewhere about them going through their subs this August. So I'll know soon.

Currently working on Finches III (alt. Mothers & Mistresses). You want to see me finish this. I want to see me finish this. Hopefully it doesn't turn into some awful rambling tale about things that do not happen, and genres that are not obvious. But you know I'll go ahead and write it like that anyway. I also have this niggling urge to go name a story Firstborn Jasmine, after a Marianne Faithfull lyric, but I'd need to go around writing a story around the title. I have thought about naming Finches III or Finches IV (yes, there is in fact another Finches) that as a working short story title. It would fit, I think. Again, that depends on how many people would even get the reference...

*facepalm* I know I said I wanted to start a cult, but that's not quite what I meant or how. ;P
