Wow, so upsetting, @ScarletBea. And I’m sure you felt embarrassed (?), especially with your niece along. I really feel for you. Here are my obsessions:

> Choosing a restaurant seat that gives me the widest possible view. Do not put me on the inside seat of a booth facing the back wall ten feet away.
> Height. I can’t look at movies where actors are (or appear to be) high up. I can sort of do ladders, at least to about 15 feet up.
> Crowds. Hate ‘em. Or stuck behind two people doing the Parchesi double-block down a narrow lane or hallway in slo-mo.

I hope you feel better now and more yourself. Hugs.

I don’t think the parallax or fly in worked on my iPhone.
I’ll check on a full browser.

@J.R. Darewood:

I have no idea what you mean here by parallax, but...

I like the images a lot and they really add to the visual experience of the web page. I also like the idea of the quote pop-out, thought this particular one is, of course, gross. But only one makes no sense. I’d put one at or near the very top as a teaser to build interest, one in the middle, and one nearer the end.

Meanwhile, I guess I should actually read the story, huh?  ;)

Congrats!! :D
I can't access the link, though, it seems it's only for members.

Ah. I’ll be putting it on my blog later today, and will link to that.

Well, it’s not anything to do with publishing, but I just won the December Challenge over at www.Fantasy-Writers.Org. Up to now, I’ve only really completed the 1,500 word challenges here at F-F, so I was really excited to have a 5,000 word canvas to play with. Since my goal this year is submit 3 fully realized stories for publication, I feel this was an important step forward.

If anyone is interested:

(I posted an earlier version in F-F’s work to be critiqued thread.)

Congrats @tebakutis :)   So...what's next? :D

Somehow or other I've ended up in this month's Grimdark Magazine with both a short story and an interview.

Somehow? I think the somehow is due to the quality of your book.  :)

The second Murderbot book by Martha Wells. There are really novellas, about 150 pages.
Great stories, great main character.

I find them interesting. Just saying.
The books or the posts?
I wasn't saying delete them, they are interesting, just break them apart from a 'what are you reading' topic.

The posts. And GotM.
But I read all the threads almost all the time, so I’ll see them in any section.

Fantastic @tebakutis !

I just want to know why you sent your wife and kids to see Kali. Isn’t that a little extreme to get some writing time? :o 8)

I really loved GotM. Fascinating, brilliant. Grim. Deeply engaging
But it took me three tries to finally get into and and then I couldn’t put it down.
