A Captive Audience

December 6, 2011

I sold a reprint to a mainstream market!  Well, kind of a mainstream market.  Okay, it’s Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader’s Flush Fiction Anthology.  So it’s better than a mainstream market; this book will be sitting someplace where it’s bound to get picked up and read!

It’s a new life for “Excuse Me”.  It originally ran in The Rejected Quarterly in full 1500-word hilarity.  I shaved it down to size and now it’s flash funny. (Okay, I am contractually obligated to say “make that FLUSH funny.”  Okay, not so much obligated as mildly amused.)

Not sure of the details of when it’ll be out or anything.  More when I find out more.  I can say I that I love the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series and I’m stoked to be a part of their first foray into fiction.  What better to put in a bathroom reader than a story about time traveling flatulence?

    Congrats, Scott.

    I’ll be joining you in the very same pages.

    As GK Chesterton once said, “If it can be sold once, it can be sold again.”

    I’m down with that.

      Glad to have the company, John! And thanks for stopping in to say hi.

      I tell you what, people are surprised enough to learn I sold my time traveling fart story once!
