Snell's January Update

New Year, Upcoming Books
So far, this year is off to a great start. One of my short stories made the finalists for a very big market; I don't want to say too much about that yet, but I'm stoked nonetheless.

Carrying over from 2010, I've put the final touches on a Cthulhu novella for a Permuted Press anthology edited by David Conyers and Brian M. Sammons. All I can say at this point is that I'll be joined by the likes of Cody Goodfellow and Tim Curran. I can't wait till I can tell you more!!!

"ELEMENTS OF THE APOCALYPSE is definitely one to pick up in the New Year."—Horror Fiction Review

To continue with the good news this year, Permuted's anthology Elements of the Apocalypse, which features my novella about apocalypse by spontaneous human combustion, is faring well with reviewers: The Horror Fiction Review, HorrorScope, and one of my favorite independent reviewers of small press lit Patrick D’Orazio all gave the entire anthology well-rounded praise. Looking forward to more in the months to come.

Market Scoops
I'm hoping to best my record number of Market Scoops from last year. I did something like 23, so... I'm hoping for at least 23.5!!! I already have another scoop ready to post at the beginning of February, this one for the new sci-fi zine Cosmos.

Games
I reinstated the link to the Flash game I developed for my novel, Roses of Blood on Barbwire Vines. You get to shoot me in the head because I'm a zombie!!! Check it out by clicking the "Game" link at the top of my blog (above the slideshow).

Hope everyone's New Years is off to an equally promising start!!!
