Second story sale is Three Penny Raven, this first of several stories I've written about Captain Phinnaeus Crowhammer and his eclectic crew. I love these characters and this story so it was great to find this story a home with Geminid Press. Look for this one in their upcoming Space Opera Anthology.
I've got a few other short stories on sub so hopefully I'll be back soon with more good news. In the meantime, let me take a moment to give a shout out to the small presses for offering these publishing opportunities to new and upcoming writers. Geminid Press is a small press out of Albuquerque, NM and SQ Mag is run by IFWG Publishing in Australia. Many thanks to these two publishers for selecting my stories for their publications, and to all the small presses out there for giving new writers a venue to get their work out to the world..
Very excited to announce that I've sold two short stories in the last two weeks. And they're two of my favorites :) First up is Rainbows and Death Machines, which was selected as a finalist in SQ Mag's annual Story Quest Contest. This is my second story with SQ Mag (Fairest Fowl was a finalist in the 2012 Story Quest Contest) so obviously I like these guys. Looking forward to that one appearing in an upcoming edition of the e-mag (I'll post it here when I have the edition).
J.B. Rockwell grew up reading fairy tales, folklore and mythology, as well as anything and everything about ancient cultures and their history, and never lost her taste for any of it. She currently lives in West Virginia with her husband and four (yes, four) cats, all of whom provide inspiration for her stories, whether they know it or not.
