Sale to Fictitious Force
I learned this morning that Fictitious Force, which published my flash "Poisoned Brush" last year, will be publishing my story "The Game." I'm very pleased by that--I think this story has received more personalized rejections and almost-but-not-quite rejections than any of my stories. And I can think of at least two of those from professional venues that included some very helpful suggestions for improving it. So it will be great to have the story published.
Also, Fictitious Force has its contributors write up a brief bit on the story behind the story. I didn't get to do that last time because they don't for flash, but I'm looking forward to telling the story of this one, as it's fun. It's a dark little, politically cynical story that I first wrote just over two years ago.
