Wish Me Luck

I'm currently shopping for a short story market for one of my Urban Fantasy Shorts! Feels good just to be out there again. Hopefully I'll find a home for my story.

This time is a little different. My first short story that was published in an anthology, the goal was just to get published for the first time. It was awesome to see my name and bio in an actual book. Well, this time the goal is twofold. I want to get my story published and I want to get paid for it this time.

That's right! I want to be paid for my work. I'm looking to turn this hobby into a part time job. So, like any other job, I want to get compensation for my time, research and writing.

Well, I'm on my way to my full time job right now so...

Cool Research Find

While doing some research on my own work...I ran across this:

Demon: Agaliarept

Why is this so cool you ask? It's the name of the Demon in my favorite authors Hollows series. This is Rachel's Demon AL! I also found Ley Lines! It's just a cool find for a nerd like myself. I know most of you don't have a clue to what I'm talking about but, it makes me happy knowing I'm traveling down some of the same Internet roads that some of my most beloved authors have as I work on my stories.



Here's my customized Commander Shepard. Mass Effect is the reason I'm thinking about trying my hand at Science-Fiction writing.

"Being alive did come with its disadvantages. For one, I didn’t want to die…again. "
That's a line from a current WIP. I'm loving writing again. It's amazing how much fun I'm having writing and putting pen to paper now that my living situation is not temporary. Buying your own home and being able to afford it, takes a great deal of stress away.
Enough of that. I'm working on a story for Raven, A Demon short and I'm trying Sci-Fiction. You can thank my addition to Mass Effect for that. 
The plan is to get a couple of short stories published to get my feet wet again then hit it hard to finish one of two novels that I have in first draft form.
