Sale to Daily Science Fiction

I’m excited to announce that I’ve sold my story ‘A Time to Kill’ to Daily Science Fiction. Release date TBA.

Sales are always extra special when they’re markets that I subscribe to and this is also my first “pro-market sale”. There are some great stories on DSF and I’m looking forward to having my story among them.

    Just read it – it came out today.

    I enjoyed it. Actually, even though it was short I jumped lines (yes, a terrible habit I am working on) to see what was going to happen, which is a good thing because you had me curious.

    I look forward to reading more of your work.

      Hi Phillip
      I sometimes jump ahead in stories too, especially novels. If I’m intrigued by the plot I often read the last few pages just to see if my favourites characters are still around.
      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.

    Me too just read it. It’s fab! Not just a gripping yarn but really beautifully written too. Well done!

    Now I too have just read it. beautiful! tragic! romantic! and really well written – spare but with a lot of feeling. What was the Jordan/Jonah thing by the way – Jordan was his assumed name and Jonah his real name or something? (I didn’t even notice the shift first time I read it).

      Hi Arnold
      Thanks for your positve comments. Yes it was meant to be an alias, but I probably should have either removed it or made it more the shift more obvious.
