Second Short Fiction Sale to The Colored Lens

I have some great news to report. Today, Dawn Lloyd, the editor-in-chief of The Colored Lens, notified me that she would be buying my short story, “Remember New Roanoke.” The story is scheduled to appear in the online magazine’s Summer 2013 issue.

“Remember New Roanoke” was the first or second story I wrote after I enrolled in Nick Mamatas’ fiction writing course in Berkeley last fall. It was a fantastic course, and Nick’s tutelage helped me improve my writing to the point of generating my second sale.

Once the Summer 2013 issue is up, I will post an update. I encourage you all to check it out once it’s posted on the site, especially since The Colored Lens is the second magazine to take a risk on a new fiction author like me.
