My second acceptance of the year is a cheat. I'm using a bit of crime fiction I co-authored with Stacy Woodson in one of my anthologies.

I don't know which three acceptances I failed to report in 2021, but I ended the year with 30 acceptances, a combination of originals and reprints.

My first acceptance of 2022 arrived this evening for the reprint of a fantasy short story.

I finished and submitted my fifth story of the year this afternoon. This one's a 5,400-word PI story written for an open-call anthology.

I've been remiss in updating my sales. Since my last post, I've received my 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th acceptances of the year, all crime fiction. One was accepted by an anthology and four by mystery magazines, including tonight's acceptance for a collaboration with Sandra Murphy. If I've counted correctly, Sandra and I have sold five collaborations.
