As promised, my short story, "Black Velveteen" has been published in this month's issue of eMuse.
"Black Velveteen" is the story of a cybernetic service unit named Velvet, who is brought into the police station on murder charges. Only during questioning does the detective in charge discover that there is more to Velvet and her story than meets the eye.
Also in the March edition of eMuse is the artwork of Andy Kaufman, an article on breaking into freelance writing by Nicole Ireland, fiction by Janet Yung and poetry by David Kowalcyzk, Doug Mathewson, Ray Succre, Anne Brooke and Tomás Ó Cárthaigh.
I know that currently, eMuse is accepting submissions of fiction and poetry for their June '09 issue, and any authors who would like to have their books reviewed, now is the time to get in touch with the staff. You can email review requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone from the staff will email you back with details.
I hope you enjoy my story, and thank you in advance for checking it out.
I'll leave you with this very sexy Lenny Kravitz video for the song that loosely inspired my story:
