Buzzy Mag ready to roll out
Got word today that Buzzy Mag's premiere issue is slated for March 26. It will include my short story "The Centurion and the Rainman". I sent them a bio and my mug shot for publication.
If you are not familiar with the project, here's a little background from when they made the original announcement a year ago:
"Buzzy Multimedia, a longtime publisher of science-fiction/fantasy audio books and specialty t-shirts, announced a year ago it is expanding into print fiction publishing on the Internet with the new Buzzy Mag.
"Buzzy Mag will debut science fiction and fantasy short stories, between eight thousand and ten thousand words, from both new and established authors. The magazine will also feature interviews with notable actors, writers, producers and other entertainment industry figures."
They paid me a nice pro rate, and provided a very professional edit. I can't offer anything but the highest praise for them, they're a class outfit. I hope everyone reads Buzzy Mag when it comes out.
