The anthology title is now confirmed, Written Across the Genres, and it is at Luminare Press. I’m working with the cover designer for the finishing touches and Linda, ace copy editor, is helping me scan the PDF file to check for possible corrections. Then we get a galley proof and look the whole thing over again.
I hope to have the book published by Feb. 1st to take copies to the San Francisco Writers Conference. February 13th.
Amazing how many details to address at the end.
Ransom Stephens, author of The God Patent, wrote a guest post for Jane Friedman’s blog on August 6, 2013. He talks about the publishing journeys of his first novel and his newest, The Sensory Deception. The title of his post is “How to Increase Your Odds at Getting Lucky”.
One of my writer friends, Haihong Liao, and I talk about the law of averages that eventually will be on our side in getting our work published. In his blog post, Ransom said, “Every query you send increases your odds. Every story you publish, every book, every literary event you attend, every time you bear your neck, your cross section gets bigger, and the odds of opportunity finding you increase.”
He doesn’t agree with people who claim that making a living as a novelist is like winning the lottery. Ransom says, “Every time you play the lottery, the odds are the same. In this game, every time you play, your odds get better.”

The God Patent is one of my favorite top ten novels and I look forward to reading The Sensory Deception.
