What's next for Nicole Walsh Author? News about novels, short stories and projects in the pipeline!
Check out the videos below for a sneak peak at upcoming work :-)
An anthology open call has accepted not one but THREE of my reprints for its upcoming project! The contract is signedAnticipated release date, December 2022.
In a second piece of exciting news, a magazine I have been submitting pieces to for years has asked for some edits on a longer piece I submitted. This was the first magazine I sent this particular story to.
I am chewing my finger-nails to shreds, waiting to see if the edits get it through the gate for their next edition! :-) Fingers crossed!
My goal for 2022 was to have many things published in many places. So far so good, with six pieces published this calendar year.
I have three completed novels in the editing/beta reader/submission stage. I continue to polish and improve these whilst I chase opportunities for publication.
The second book in the Demon-King, Angel-Queen series (Book Two of Lust and Submission) is complete. About to move into the editing/beta reader stage. Both pieces are written as stand-alone pieces, following the same protagonist on two seperate adventures.
What am I excited about:
I have two longer short stories completed (10-20k words) and in the editing/beta reader submission stage. I have 15 other short stories (new, or reprints) chasing homes :-) My goal this year is to have 15-20 pieces (shorts, novels and reprints) out chasing oportunities at all times. Which means: no more sooking over rejections.
There's also a lot of writing... ideas, fragments, half-completed pieces with the wheels off and grass growing over them and crickets chirping. Every now and then I stab my toe tripping over an old piece and kick the muse into gear :-)
