In Which I'm Published

Besides the awesomeness of Christmas and New Years over these last few weeks, something else exciting happened:





I'm officially published, yo.



My Horror short story Hole Ridden has been pubished. Dark Moon Digest #6 is available for purchase through Amazon or Barnes and Noble and will release as an ebook later in the year.

I'm not going to lie, I was pretty excited when it arrived in the mail. And my super cool parents bought 8 copies to pass out to members of the fam over Christmas.

Since it's also Insecure Writer's Support group today, I'd like to point out to anyone feeling the blues about their writing that I'd been sitting on this story for years. YEARS, before last year I made a goal to start submitting it. It only takes that one decisions, guys, to get you on the right path.

Sometimes you just have to take the plunge. What's the worst that can happen? What's the best?
And, seriously, you'll never experience the best if you don't take a chance and risk the worst.

So how's your writing going?
