Story Sale to Mothership Zeta!

Hey, so you know this post I made a while ago? Yeah, I figured out how the story ended. And made that “placeholder” title the “real” title. Also, sold it to Mothership Zeta!

So, I’m beyond thrilled. One of my biggest worries when writing this was how will I find a home for it? It’s way too light and silly for most short story magazines. But I loved my character’s voice, so I wrote it anyway. After sending it out a few times and getting rejections that said “Good story, but not a good fit for us” I was worried I was right.

But then this brand new magazine called Mothership Zeta came along looking for fun, trope-bending stories and well, you can figure out how it went from there.

So I guess my point is write what you want. There will always be new markets and anthology calls. The universe is expanding and it has a way of making room for our stories.

A Non-Hero’s Guide to the Road of Monsters will appear in Mothership Zeta’s Issue #3 in March, 2016.
