Since I haven't made many sales and I didn't want my site to look abandoned, I decided to add a new section, writers resources.
This will be anything from online programs, to software you install on your computer. Of course, I will have a few links to sites that list markets.

Cop For A Day - Review
October 15, 2013 SF Site Reviews reviewed Writer's of the Future XXIX. This review has something thoughtful to say about every story in this book. Starting at paragraph 12, I was surprised to find out this reviewer, Dave Truesdale, thought my story was the best story in the book.
Book Sales and Signings
In case anyone was unable to attend the official book signings (held at Barnes & Noble in Burbank and Huntington Beach) or any of my stealth signings (at shows in the Southern California area-Huntington Beach, El Segundo and Hermosa Beach), and are interested in an autographed copy of the book, I'll be keeping a couple of the books in my car until I run out.

STOP THE PRESSES - AGAIN!: December 26, 2012
Another day, another phone call.
Writers of the Future will be publishing my story in their annual anthology. I came in fourth place. Which means no prize money. :-( However, I do get normal pay for my story, I will attend the writers workshop and the awards ceremony and receive all the other benefits of the winners.
START THE PRESSES: December 20, 2012
I'm no longer at a loss for words. The winners were announced, and I wasn't one of them. I'm disappointed that I didn't win. However, I'm still very happy that my first time submission did this well. I may yet have a future with this writing thing. :-)

STOP THE PRESSES: December 13, 2012
Would you believe I am at a loss for words?
I received a phone call this morning informing me that I am one of eight writers selected as finalists in the 4th quarter of this contest which has been running for twenty nine years. I am both surprised and honored to reach this point. I am looking forward to seeing my stories in print. If not here, then in other publications that feature science fiction and fantasy writers.
