All’s been pretty quiet since Story-a-Day May. I’ve been taking a writing break, while focusing on editing some of the pieces I wrote in May. Thus not a lot of action over here!
But I’m breaking radio silence to announce that “Bluebird Magick” — a story I wrote during 2012’s Story-a-Day challenge — was published today in The Future Fire, Issue 26. It can be read online here, or the entire issue can be downloaded an ebook in multiple formats (here).
I was inspired to write “Bluebird Magick” by a photo prompt that I put on my Pinterest board.
Working with The Future Fire‘s editor, Djibril al-Ayad, has been a real pleasure. Not to mention my story has not one, but two beautiful illustrations. You can see more lovely artwork by Cécile Matthey both on her website as well as on this list of illustrations she’s done for The Future Fire in the past.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Back to editing and writing my stories! I hope you’ll take the time to read “Bluebird Magick”, as well as the other stories in this issue. Let me know what you think if you do!
