Sorry for any inconvenience as Not So Great Western say. After an expensive experience renewing my domain name that was expired, I’m back, but also with ianduncansmith.com, because I couldn’t resist owning another domain with my name on it. But how am I going to remember to renew my domains a year from now and avoid the dreaded expiry?
So what have I been doing. I’m writing a genre novel under a different name and wearing a heavy disguise. I won’t be writing any spec fic, sci-fi, horror or bizarro for a while, although I wonlt be saying that on my specficstories blog. It’s a secret. I decided on a change in direction after finally selling one sci-fi story to add to the other 30 or so that were published without payment. It’s a very short effort and it will be out next year. The sparse, original, unusual horror stuff is on hold for now though, sadly, because that’s what I like doing.
My final effort, a sci-fi / bizarro / horror novel that I started in 2008 is still out there awaiting sentence at various agents and publishers while they poke it with a stick to fathom out exactly what it is. I have had one rejection so far, but the others seem reluctant to reject it, or else they just can’t be bothered. More as it happens.
