Sale Braggage: "The Unworthy" Sold to Fantasy Scroll Mag

I am pleased to share a little good news from this past weekend. A story of mine called The Unworthy has been accepted for publication by Fantasy Scroll Mag, an upcoming speculative fiction magazine run by the creator of the Fantasy Scroll writing blog. From their website:

Fantasy Scroll Mag is a quarterly publication featuring science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal short-fiction. We are a brand new publication and our mission is to publish high-quality, entertaining, and thought-provoking speculative fiction. We plan to publish our first issue in the first half of 2014 and we are now in the process of collecting stories.

The Unworthy is a dark fantasy piece that leaped from some weird corner of my brain a couple of years ago when I first started experimenting at flash fiction length, and I'm glad it's found a home at Fantasy Scroll Mag.

FSM's editor-in-chief, Iulian Ionescu, invited me to submit something after he read Item Not As Described in UFO 2. I'm delighted to have my work featured in one of their first issues (I'm told it will be either the first or second), and it looks like I'll be sharing space with some talented authors. Please consider checking it out when the time comes. New speculative fiction markets are always welcome!
