Believers

I got some amazingly good news about my novel: The Sun will be publishing an excerpt. (No details on when yet.)

This is a much-needed shot in the arm. It's a book -- called Believers -- that I've been working on for a long time (I won't go into the details; perhaps another post), and the past year I've been wrestling (unsuccessfully) with the structure.

Right before I got The Sun acceptance, I finally had a breakthrough. I finally figured some shit out. And I've made more progress in the past few months than I have in the past few years. (Additionally, I've sworn off working on short stories and flash pieces.)

So there's that, which is nice.

And also, more recently, there's this: a very small excerpt from Believers is now up at Wigleaf. It's called "The One You Don't Pick."
