I’ll admit it: I’m a little curious about the person who tagged Echoes on Amazon as being about “coming of age,” “medusa,” and “druids.”
My very grown-up characters have nothing to do with Medusa. They certainly aren’t druids. Nor do they interact with any. I just sat there and stared at the tags blankly, trying to figure out who would get those particular tags out of the plot.
(Although I have to admit, druids looking for Medusa in space is a story I’d probably write.)
Yes, I’m finally getting around to tagging my stories. Late Suz, Very Bad. Grave New World is easy enough; anything remotely zombie/post-apocalyptic fits. I’ve also considered stowing it under fantasy, although I’m leaving it under horror for now.
On the freelance side…I applied to a barrage of gigs this morning. Hopefully a few of them will come through.
In the meantime, I’m working through a manuscript for a new client, and am picking at a “Clips From the End of the World” short story. I’m guessing it’ll top out around 7,000 words; it’ll be a free download on B&N and my website (not sure Amazon allows free downloads). “Clips” serves as a bridge between Grave New World and Death and Biker Gangs.
