My pirate short story, Skullhaven, is short listed for the Cutlass and Musket Anthology in the previous post! I just heard back today.
As for the BSO, I'll hear back from them by December 10th to see if I get a live audition. They have my recording, so all I can do now is wait.
I've started a new story for this anthology:
What a neat cover! I bet this one is harder to get into because it's a paying market, but I'm giving it a try. My story is a sci fi explorer story, set in the year 2568 called Timeshift.
Here's the beginning:
“Compatible planet found.”
The monotone computer voice echoed in Donnica's head as sound with no meaning. She reached up with shaky fingers and touched the ice crusted glass above her face. Tubes rustled from her arm and she yanked them out, squirming.
How long had she been in stasis?
Anyone else going to write for this one?
