Looks like the Year of the Dragon is coming a little early. I’m happy to report two sales in 2011 so far, both dragon stories, though they couldn’t be any more different from each other.

Dragon’s Breath is a dark, edgy piece about addiction, scheduled to appear in the fall issue of Dark Valentine.

Lilitol the Curmudgeon is a lighthearted (albeit gory) holiday romp, scheduled to appear in the July issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly.

I’m predicting a hot season for dragon stories, so if you’ve got one burning in the back of your mind, now might be the time to put pen to paper!

Hurray – go go go!

Hmm, I have two half-written ones, perhaps I should finish them off fast.

Also, neat stuff, someone I know through a London connection posted her favorite short stories and she named you! I was all I KNOW HER SHE’S A REAL PERSON!

Cool, Sylvia! I’ll have to google stalk myself. 🙂 And good luck finishing off those dragon stories!

Thanks, Miranda!

Are these W1S1 stories, or written before?

Either way, congratulations!

They’re older stories. Haven’t sold a W1S1 story yet, but hopefully soon! And Thanks, Shelley!
