Beneath Ceaseless Skies just offered for my Clarion West week 3 story “A Screech of Gulls.” This is the one based in the same world as my Chiaroscuro manuscript. The one that caused my instructor (George R.R. Martin) to say, “This was bleak. You are a dark and despairing person.”
I still need to get that quote on a t-shirt.
Many thanks to all my CW littermates for their support on this one, and especially to Helen Marshall for trading turn-in days with me, to Bryan Camp for suggesting I give a character a bad day, and to Cory Skerry for requesting pigeons.
You guys!! A tiny little facet of Chiaroscuro is going to be out in the world!! Eeeeeeeeee!!!!!
