I tend to post most of my stuff over at Wordpress...

My first two pieces to be published should be online this weekend. Oddly enough, even though I'm primarily a fantasy fan, they're both horror pieces. One is at http://www.latelateshow.net and the other is at http://www.edgeofpropinquity.net.

Drop by and let me know what you think (even if it's not good).

I finished the first draft of "The Final Quarter" a couple of days ago. I plan to put it aside for a week or so and come back to it to review. I really like the back story I've developed, and I may expand the storyline for this one. Maybe it's sick, but I've found I really enjoy writing post-apocalyptic stuff.

Now I'm going back to an old project I started but didn't finish, a short entitled "The Everything Purse."

Nov. 8th, 2006 05:55 pm A love-hate relationship...

I love the speed at which we can access things on the Web, but sometimes I really hate it, too.

I've submitted stories to various publications. To date, I only send my writing to those that take e-submissions. It's faster that way, and I save on postage, paper, envelopes, ink, etc...you get the picture (which is probably that I'm a cheapskate).

But at the same time, that speed makes me really antsy. My latest example is a story called "Old Nag" I've submitted to Way Out West, an anthology to be printed by Fourth Horseman Press. That was in July. Submissions closed Sept. 30. Their site says they'll announce the lineup "soon." And I still haven't heard anything. It's driving me batty.

Of course, it's probably not helped by the fact that I got quick acceptances for a couple of projects by gaan'eden, "Final Edition" for the Grants Pass anthology and "First Night in Jennings Grove" for the online zine Edge of Propinquity.

Of course, one of my latest acceptances was for a short story I submitted to the online horror zine The Late Late Show.

I'm also waiting to hear from Fourth Horseman Press about a short story for their Revelations magazine.

"Ed Gruberman, you must learn patience."
"Yeah, yeah, patience. How long will that take?"

Current project: "Final Quarter," a post-apocalyptic pirate story.

Greetings earthlings (and the aliens from Spaxil IV -- when are you going to give us your secret for really good bandwidth?)! This is my first attempt at any sort of online thingamabob (technical term, I know).

I am a corporate communications specialist in Texas and also do some writing of my own. when the twin pressures of work and family let me. I'm a fan of the fantasy genre, but I've written everything from Western to post-apocalyptic.

So, how's stuff n things?
