Internet Writing Workshop members continue to find publishing success in all venues.
Congratulations to this week's crew!
Joanna M. Weston
This is what happens when you have a small staff; you end up writing the majority of the articles. Hopefully that will all change. We're talking to two magazine consultants and a magazine distributor for Barnes and Noble and Borders. More subscriptions mean more cash, more print issues and hopefully a growing staff.
I don't know whether I want my limelight taken away or not, but this week in Hand/Eye Magazine we did a museum issue covering five museums that have ongoing textile exhibits. My specific articles are "Rhythm and Hues," "Kantha Anthology," and "Fisch Out of Water."
Death Head Grin has accepted two stories of mine. "Being Watched" is set for May publication and "Till Human Voices Wake Us," for June. Both of these stories began on the Practice list.
Lunarosity will publish my flash, "Nighttime Whispers," in their March issue. Thanks to Bob Sanchez for reminding me about Lunarosity.
My first novel Circe has been reviewed at Suite 101.
It should be out in print this spring and will be available as paperback on Amazon as well as at Under the Moon.
I'm a guest blogger today over at Mystery Writing is Murder, where I comment about the revision process. Please go take a look and leave a comment there!
I have a column up at The Tampa Tribune.
A slightly tame version of that hot topic, high speed rail, is at Creative Loafing.
And also for Creative Loafing, just when I started missing hate mail.
My story, "Butts-Up" is in the new issue of Lowestoft Chronicle.
Bone and Jewel Creatures by Elizabeth Bear

The Fourth Assassin: An Omar Yussef Mystery by Matt Beynon Rees
In his fourth Omar Yussef mystery, aptly titled The Fourth Assassin, Matt Beynon Rees brings Palestinian teacher and scholar Omar Yussef Sirhan to a U.N. conference in New York where he stumbles on a headless corpse he at first believes is his son.
I heard from a favorite editor who has changed jobs and called me to offer an on-going gig writing for her at a decent pay.
I have a new piece, "Somewhere Inside" posted at Camroc Press today and another one, "webcam celebrity; film and upload" forthcoming at Dogzplot. Both Barrys are excellent editors and both are a total pleasure to work with.
I have the following articles up this week:
"Aurora Borealis" for Helium.
"Obesity, Your Heart and Sleep," at Health Central.
Metazen has published my microfiction piece, "Out of the Frying Pan."
Metazen is also looking for input to a 52-flash ebook they're working on that will showcase male and female perspectives on 26 words, one for each letter in the alphabet. I found nothing in their guidelines about this project, but you can email the editor for particulars and a list of words still available.
My super short, "Beginning Years of Solitude," is live at 50 to 1.
My flash, "50th Reunion," is live at Short, Fast, and Deadly. Read down to it. Won't take long.
When I subbed this piece to the nonfiction list last year, it was the "70th." Goes to show...fiction can make you younger.
