My second story sale ever is now up at Fantasy Magazine! It was also one of my Clarion West application stories, until I had to withdraw my app. It’s called “Potemora in the Triad” and it’s about a girl trying to escape her really shitty divine fate, as overseen by the massive snake god whose back she lives on… who is also her dad. It’s also about her younger sister, who he’s raising to become a twisted god-killing assassin. But her younger sister gets to have a really cool diamond sword? So maybe it’s okay?
I also got to do an author spotlight, which I’m massively chuffed about. I talk about Sofia Samatar and Seth Dickinson and anime showdowns! It’s a good time! Check it out! Author Spotlight: Sara S. Messenger – Fantasy Magazine
