Irrepressible has Sold

Necrotic Tissue took it. They had said that it was in second round. A good win, since duotrope says they take 6% and are technically semi-pro though barely.
First color cover mag! Out in January, 2011.
Irrepressible is The Great Divorce turned on its head. Instead of the damned having holidays, the saved do. Another inspiration was the Sarah that burst on the national scene September 3rd, 2008. Resemblance to any person living or dead is of course, purely coincidental. Sarah is a quite common name. Like Pilgrim's Progress Irrepressible has its own Slough of Despond, and it nearly claims a victim.
Ah, well, the more conventional of my Christian friends may take offense, but it was in good fun. Of course, how many of those would read Necrotic Tissue?

Generous of you. Your reception to the rough draft was, shall we say, lukewarm? Do you remember? Lesson in perseverance. It was on its 15th market. Remember, "They stopped and turned and smiled and reached out their hands and all said, 'Sarah!'"?
