I’ve been sitting on this for a couple of days and frankly it’s been rather uncomfortable. Now, however, I can reveal the awesome news. Remember this?
It’s called Machine of Death, and it’s the anthology that caused quite a stir and became an Amazon #1 bestseller, beating out Glenn Beck’s book in hilarious fashion. If you’ve never read it, you can buy it in bookstores or even read it online for free. It’s all about a machine that can tell you how you’re going to die. It’s a simple premise, strong enough to spawn a sequel. And yes, you can probably tell where this is going.
I’m in Machine of Death 2.
This would be a big deal on its own. It’s an even bigger deal because the editors selected just thirty stories out of 2,000 submissions.
Yeah, you read that right.
Two thousand story submissions.
Just take a moment to have a think about what that means. I had to choose from 80 story pitches for World’s Collider. I can’t even begin to contemplate picking 30 from 2,000!
More details as I have them. The story is called Your Choice and is structured in a way I hoped would be unlike any other submission (and clearly I made the right choice!) I am thrilled and excited to be a part of this and I want to thank Ryan, Matt and David for selecting it.
