1, 2, 3

I received my first three acceptances of the year—one yesterday evening and two this morning. All are reprints. Two are crime fiction. The third is either crime fiction or a ghost story, depending on how you read it.

I completed and submitted my first short story of the year. This one's a 5,800-word bit of crime fiction I began writing July 10, 2023.

I received my 21st acceptance of the year last evening, this for a 4,600-word bit of crime fiction written for an invitation-only anthology.

19 & 20

Two more acceptances this afternoon, my 19th and 20th of the year. This time it's reprint rights to two crime fiction short stories.

17 & 18

I received two acceptances today, both for crime fiction. These are a bit of a cheat as they will appear in anthologies I'm co-editing.

I received my 14th acceptance of the year few days—for a heartwarming Christmas story—and forgot to record it.

I received my 15th acceptance of the year this afternoon, this time for a short piece of crime fiction.
