My story, "Blessed are the Sowers," goes live at Daily Science Fiction. It will be emailed to subscribers tomorrow (7/28) and will be available to all others a week later.
The story comes with the following adult content warning:
This is not the most violent story, nor the most sexually explicit, that Daily Science Fiction has published. Still, both elements exist, sufficiently so that the most sensitive among our imaginative readers may wish to steer clear. We hope you don't, of course.
While I'm proud of everything I've had published (yes, even the silly stuff), this is my first "pro" rate publication, and I'm particularly enthusiastic about it. It's a flash piece (1000 words), and I've found that I like doing flash pieces. I was never very interested in writing poetry, but flash fiction reminds me a bit of doing poetry: you must make every word count.

So... you can expect me to become involved in a vicious flame war shortly after.
