I Was Left To My Own Devices
Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Do you recall the last time I blogged?
I mentioned I was going to write a story for NaNoWriMo.
I did. I completed it (over 50,000 words).
I submitted it for a competition.
I received word this afternoon that I won the competition.
I have just sent the signed contract to the publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books.
This is the top of the contract.
Yeah, I'm really doing it.
Untrustworthy is a science fiction story about a society that slowly, inexorably, begins to lose its freedom and experience its own version of a holocaust. It is a tragedy, an LGBT allegory, and a love story, played out against an alien backdrop.
Thank you to everyone who believed in me.
