My First Mashup Post

My Li'l Pony Meets the Living Dead

Thanks for dropping by. Still no queries to shred, so, umm ... *looking around for something to say*...

The new filly has a name: Bonita! Since her mom is Bella, that makes a nice match, don't you think? The name was chosen through a contest among my coworkers. Unsurprisingly, the winning entry came from a native Guatemalan. Who also happened to have a heavy hand in the cover design for the Extinct anthology. Thanks, Edgar -- on multiple counts!

Oh, and I had a short story accepted for a print anthology. Here's a sneak peek at the cover. Pretty awesome, huh? Zombies. The Civil War. I KNEW that MA in English and those hundreds of hours applying the many schools of literary criticism and theory to some of the most masterful works of our language wouldn't go to waste. Details closer to release, which should be before the end of the year.

Umm, slow news day. I got nothin' else.

So, in conclusion, send queries (phoenixsullivan @ and send stories for Extinct. And pet a baby horse if you have one handy.

Bonita's a great name.

All I have to hand to pet is a cat or two - and one of them nips when he's had enough!

Got my first lesson in horse grooming Friday night. My wife is helping care for a couple of horses these days in exchange for a little riding.

Bonita is a great name. And that little bugger is so cute.

Will work up a query for my WIP someday soon. (Not the Garlic one)

Oh and congrats!!

So glad all that hard work in school is paying off.

Now, if that's the Civil War beginning we saw on EE's blog, you might want to go over there and tell us. Because, congratulations!

Ah, Bonita, a name the angels whisper. Can I borrow this friend to name some of my characters? Or, I dunno, any kids I may eventually have.

Zombie's in literature is hitting critical mass, no? Don't forget to blog the release date so I can grab a copy.
