Subject: [sale] Short story "West to East" to Subterranean Online
Security: Public
Tags:sale, stories, writing
Short story "West to East" was accepted by Subterranean Online yesterday. Old school SF, through the Jay Lake filter.

That makes eighteen short fiction sales for the year to date, not all of which I've been able to announce. Two of those were jointly written with calendula_witch. Not so bad for a year mostly spent on chemo and its discontents.

Congrats! Also - if they've sold, why are there some you can't announce? (more to learn about this biz :>)

Sometimes markets are closed or otherwise unannounced. This can be for competitive reasons, marketing reasons, finance reasons, etc. Sometimes stories are written pseudonymously, and can't be announced under one's one name. Etc.

For example, I knew about METAtropolis: Cascadia literally a year before I was permitted to discuss it in public.

That's great news, and quite a good record considering the year you've had!
