"Thirteen Words" and other IGMS related news

"Thirteen Words" Now Live on IGMS

My story, "Thirteen Words", is now up in Issue 33 of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. The illustration accompanying it is by Nicole Cardiff.

I wrote the original version of this story during Viable Paradise 16 last year based on a prompt and an item I was given, but I'll go into that in more detail in an upcoming post on the IGMS blog Side-Show Freaks.

"The Butcher of Londinium" wins 1st Place in the 3rd Annual Intergalactic Awards

I also found out today that my IGMS story from last year, "The Butcher of Londinium", placed 1st in the IGMS reader's choice awards for 2012. Excitingly, the illustration for my story also won for best cover.

Story Sale - "Thirteen Words" - to Intergalactic Medicine Show

I received an email on Monday from Edmund Schubert, Editor of  OSC's Intergalactic Medicine Show. He's buying my story "Thirteen Words" for the next issue of the magazine. This marks my second sale to IGMS.

Like every story in IGMS, it will have an accompanying illustration. I loved the one for my previous story, and I can't wait to see what this one looks like!
