Dr Slither

One way and another I haven’t written much lately, so I was relieved when my story “Slugs” went down well at the critters writing group. I edited, it, changed the title to “Dr. Slither”, and sent it off to Farthing magazine.

Now I average one sale for every ten submissions, so I was stunned and delighted when they bought it after only 12 days. The only catch is that it won’t be published until issue 5, which will probably be early next year.

Now all I need to do is to send off another twenty submissions or so.
