I Was Left To My Own Devices

Do you recall the last time I blogged?

I do.

I mentioned I was going to write a story for NaNoWriMo.

I did. I completed it (over 50,000 words).

I submitted it for a competition.

I received word this afternoon that I won the competition.

I have just sent the signed contract to the publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books.

riverdaleavebooks.com/

This is the top of the contract.



Yeah, I'm really doing it.

Untrustworthy is a science fiction story about a society that slowly, inexorably, begins to lose its freedom and experience its own version of a holocaust. It is a tragedy, an LGBT allegory, and a love story, played out against an alien backdrop.

Thank you to everyone who believed in me.

Thank you.
