Belated Happy Imbolc/Setsubun!

Spring is coming!!!!

In my strange pagan-but-not-pagan way, I've acknowledged the more traditional Imbolc (Saturday) and Japanese Setsubun (arguably Sunday or Monday)- no wonder putting my religion down on the census is a tricky endeavour!

Whatever you celebrate, hope you had a good one!

I have to say if the end of January is the way the rest of the year is going to go, I am totally ok with that!  And the beginning of February hasn't been too shabby either!  Within the space of of 2 weeks, I have had two submissions accepted- last week, Hic Dragones accepted my short story "Skin" for their Impossible Spaces anthology.  The other day, Siren's Call Publications accepted my quirky little poem "Fey Shaper" for their February issue of their bi-monthly eZine, coming soon!  I was particularly keen to get it included, as February is Women in Horror month! :)

And of course, also coming soon, my story "Clockwork Doll" will be featured in SCP's steampunk anthology, but more on that when I have more details!

So I have other ideas to get working on as well, so I best be off.  On a slightly random note I also need to go to a fabric store to pick up material for a costume- I'm going to be dressing up as Inanna, Sumerian Goddess of Love, Sex and Warfare.  The normal life for me, eh? ^^;;



  1. Congratulations! This is wonderful news. :) I am falling in love with steampunk. I want to read more of it, as it's still pretty new to me.

    1. Thank you! :) Steampunk has been around longer than the trend might have you think, but its a trend I am certainly enjoying, be it fashion, aesthetic or literature :) (the goth in me just can't resist the neo-Victorian outfits hehe!)
