I've been invited to appear on WREK 91.1 in Atlanta tonight (Thursday 3/29) at 7pm. Listen online: www.wrek.org/scifilab/

They keep shows archived for two weeks, so you have that long to hear me make a fool of myself.  Grin

Just sold a story that was inspired by a Steve Eley intro -- it was for Pressure. Won't reveal the market until I sign the contract, but after four years of revising and re-submitting, I'm really glad I sold it. And proud. It's one of my favorites.

Of course, it's also been cut down by more than 4000 words from the original; maybe someday, when I have a short-story collection published, I'll include both the original and the published version.

As soon as I sign the contract and get the okay from the editor, I'll pass on the good news like Chris Griffin does to Mr. Herbert.

Just signed the contract for my third qualifying professional sale, which means I'll be applying to join the SFWA as a full member pretty soon. Just waiting for the check to clear. I'm not actually sure if I should say where it's been accepted yet, but I'm pretty sure you've all heard of it.

Also, "The Plumbers and the Princess" is now in print in Aoife's Kiss #41 -- http://samsdotpublishing.com/aoife/cover.htm

I just hit 60,000 words on my fantasy novel, and we haven't even SEEN the Big Bad yet. I don't want this to be an epic, but I fear that it's turning into one.

17 chapters down, about 14-15 to go.

Well, you can't read it yet, but my novel is up to 78,000 words, with about 50,000 to go (depending upon how long each of the remaining 14 chapters is -- I'm averaging 3700 words apiece).

For those of you not following me on the Twitters, the Facebooks, or the Plussed Googles...

Since August 21, I've written a little more than 40,000 words. The novel is now done. It totals 122,100 (first draft). Right now it's with a beta reader, and I'm hoping to have the first round of edits done by 11/1.

Journey Into has agreed to reprint one of my fantasy stories. The contract is signed.

Dunesteef is currently producing one of my novellas.

An agent requested the first three chapters of my novel. She has them now and I am waiting to hear more.

You are now caught up.

The story is now available. It's called "Secret Santa". Just in time for Christmas. http://dunesteef.com/2012/12/23/episode-138-secret-santa-by-josh-roseman/

An agent requested the first three chapters of my novel. She has them now and I am waiting to hear more.

The agent said no. I have since sent to a different agent. If that other agent (who is representing this writer I know locally) doesn't like it, I'll start going directly to publishers.

I'm back.

If you enjoy erotica, you might want to check out my erotica novel, which was published recently: http://amzn.to/1aKt2v2

I've had a couple of stories accepted by the Dunesteef, and one forthcoming from Journey Into, but overall it's been a quiet year for me, publication-wise.

On the audio front, I've appeared on StarShipSofa, Protecting Project Pulp, Crime City Central, Pseudopod, and Tales from Gnosis College.

Now you know.

Speaking of StarShipSofa, they just reprinted "Greener", which originally appeared in Asimov's in March 2012.

Listen.

Just yesterday I released "Secret Santa", which aired last Christmas on the Dunesteef, in Kindle form.

http://amzn.to/IezMpa

The Dunesteef is publishing the sequel as well.

The Dunesteef published "Secret Santa 2" last week, but I haven't been near enough to a computer to really post about it. So... here:

Here are some things that have happened:

Renaissance E Books has sent me contracts for a second novel as well as a novelette. I am in the contract review process now, which basically means "figure out where the hell I filed my last contract so that I can make sure the terms are the same".

Cast of Wonders has accepted one of my stories for publication.

I have written almost 20,000 words of a new novel (non-genre) since Tuesday the 14th.
