It’s February, which means we’re now well into the new year. No time like the present for a little update. (It’s Groundhog Day, so maybe I’ll be posting this in a time loop for eternity).
First and foremost, my latest short story came out a few weeks ago in the always exciting pages of Broadswords and Blasters (https://broadswordsandblasters.com). If you haven’t checked out the magazine or their awesome pulp review blog, you owe it to yourself to head over there now.
A few things you may have missed last year: I had two poems published in 2018, which can be found by following the writing tab on my webpage. One is a haiku about a poor blue jay I found wounded in the middle of the road, unable to fly; the other is a tribute to my students, who each have their own daily challenges to endure. My writing and submitting slowed down last year, though, as my adorable baby entered the world in May. He’s the best!
Looking forward, I have had a story accepted for a comic book anthology that will be coming out (probably) this fall. I’m super excited, since it was my first comic book script! I really enjoyed writing it, and I’ll try to keep my eyes open for more calls for that sort of thing.
I have one more big piece of news about writing, but I’ll be saving that for it’s own post when the time is right.
In non-writing news: Nico is 8 months old now, and I’m continuously amazed at how quickly he’s changing. It wasn’t long ago that he couldn’t life his head, now he can (try to) stand! The wife and I are excited to be taking a trip to Thailand soon so Nico can meet my wife’s parents and siblings. In other words, all is well on the homefront.
Thanks for reading. Don’t forget, you can sign up for my mailing list on the welcome page of mdecarolis.com. I post irregularly, so you might like the notification!
