Marching into March

I'm continuing to make good progress on the new Captain Quasar novel: up to 61,000 words this week. My ultimate goal is 80K, the same as The Space-Time Displacement Conundrum. This story is told in five parts, and I'm in the middle of the fifth and final episode right now. The tone has been a struggle for me lately (epic showdown, some dark elements while keeping the humor going strong), but I'll figure it out. I've been writing every day for the past three months, and it feels good.

In other news, Daily Science Fiction has held another story for consideration. This is my fourth submission from last year's StoryADay challenge to be shortlisted by DSF. And while it's nice being told that only 10% of submissions make it this far, an acceptance sure would be nicer.

In audiobook news, Unreal Encounters, my collection of 40 Twilight Zone-ish tales, is now in production, and it's going to have not 1 but 10 narrators. How cool is that? A producer/director contacted me via ACX out of the blue and asked if I'd be interested in working with them. After listening to a few audio samples from the narrators and liking what I heard, I signed the contract. The final product will be 10 hours long and should be completed by this summer. I can't wait to hear it and share it with you.
