I've been posting my stories at my website, but I have been forgetting to post links here. I'm not sure if anyone is interested in reading my work, but I'll remember to post the links to my site here just in case. This is a continuation of the story of Aladdin (the one from A THousand and One Nights) called The Echo of Eons: http://www.keppiehed.com/includes/story/library.php?sid=231l11698. I wrote it for Zimbell House Publishing, which has some really great opportunities for writers, if any of you are interested: contests/submissions here!

I know I've been really absent lately; the start of the school year seems like it has been rocky this time! I'm buried under conflicting kids schedules/illnesses/etc. In happy news, I was asked to join the staff of Bedlam Publishing in a newly created position as submissions editor! So I am really thrilled about that. We're just beginning the process of looking through submissions for the third issue of Loud Zoo, their online literary magazine, so I have my hands full with that job. It's been a daunting but educational experience. I hope I'm doing a good job. Eeek!

I'm also keeping my chin up about writing. It comes and goes as far as rejections and acceptances are concerned (as you guys know!) so it's important to keep going with it. I've only had eleven acceptances this year, which feels a bit like a loss somehow, but the year isn't over yet.

In unrelated news, I just got back from a great trip to Stratford, Ontario. For those of you who don't know Stratford, it is known for its outstanding repertory theater, most notably their excellent Shakespeare productions. I was invited to take a trip with my sister and her friend, a world famous Shakespeare webcomic artist. We had a wonderful time! Stratford had a fantastic season this year, and I was able to see two shows: an avante garde production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Gershwin's Crazy For You. I can't praise them enough; they were just phenomenal. To say I rarely get out is an understatement, but these made up for the lack. I feel fortified enough to dance through winter now. Here I am basking like a queen in hotel room and another pic of me with a random gnome on a street in Stratford:

me and a garden gnome in Stratford

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the fall season, especially if you live somewhere with beautiful foliage. Take care of yourselves! <3

Hey there! I hadn't heard from you for a while, and I'd begun to assume the worst, which is to say the usual reason that I stop hearing from people - they've changed their names and moved to the moon. I'm glad to learn that your name isn't Esmerelda Flamjammer and that you don't live on the moon.

Hwango, I have missed you! How have you been? How is your art going? I can't say that I have plans to go to the moon, but the name Esmerelda Flamjammer is too good to pass up, so I have to make that my new alias. I wonder if that would be Ms. or Mrs.? Aha! Dr. Flamjammer for sure! ;)

Hmm, Dr. Flamjammer has a definite mad-sciency ring to it. Death ray or robot army?
Oct. 16th, 2014 01:01 pm (UTC)
I say why not both? Dr. Flammjammer has constructed the world's first army of robots that have built in death rays in their chest cavities. MUAHAHAHA! But I'm not evil. This is all for the good of mankind.

Hmm...Death Rays for the good of mankind. That sounds like a familiar idea...

So I think I see what you're hinting at. In time, Dr. Flamjammer's laser ray, when affixed to robots, could potentially be used to scan groceries and perform eye surgery. What a boon to mankind. Excellent applications! XD

Too funny. Thanks for the link! I definitely needed that today!
