Yesterday Alec and I sold our short story, “Calm,” to Analog.


I am always relieved when I make my first sale of the year, even though I know that the turning of the year is entirely arbitrary. Still, just as my grade school friends and I would greet each other melodramatically in January (“I haven’t seen you all year!”), I have a bit of “I haven’t sold a story all year!” until I do. So now I have! Onwards.


(Also Alec and I have such fun writing these things together that it’s always nice when someone else enjoys them too.)

Boy, do I ever hear you on the "I haven't sold a story All Year!" front.
