“Comes The Piper” Finds its Frequency

I’m pleased to announce that Plasma Frequency has accepted my story “Comes the Piper.”  This is my first sale of 2014, and it feels good to sell one after a lengthy dry spell.  “Comes the Piper” is a very different story for me.  It’s dark, dark, dark, and then a little darker.  I would call it a horror (although maybe it’s only horrific), but I don’t know if people who write horror would agree.  It’s the closest thing to horror I’ve ever written, and I must confess it left my psyche a little scarred.  The story still gives me a bit of a shiver to think about it.

So, yeah, I’m happy it’s finally found a home, even if I wonder if I should have let out the door.  What would the neighbors think?  Ah, who cares what they think.  I hope you’ll check it out when it comes available later this year, and I hope it gives you as much a chill as it gave me.

    Congrats on your first sale of 2014! How exciting!

    • Thanks, Christi. Every sale is exciting, but it sure is nice to finally sell this one. This was one of my “problem children” that haunted me for a long time. BTW, love your site; lot’s of great info.
