Author/Artist Bio

A lifelong lover of all things Sci-Fi/Fantasy, B.S.Roberts devotes his time to the genre by reading, watching, listening to and, of course, creating everything that he possibly can. To break up the time, he also enjoys to paint with both oils and acrylics, draw with pencil and Sharpie, and take photography. When not indulging in magic, futuristic technology, paintings, or drawings, he makes a living as a museum curator and an administrative assistant at the University of Maine at Augusta. He also tends to be working on his degree in English. B.S.Roberts lives in Maine with his wife, daughter, silver pheasants, tortoise, and four cats.

Rejection Counter

Getting published is difficult – every editor going through slush piles are looking for something different and every publisher has their own standards for what is or is not acceptable. One mark of a writer is accumulating many, many, many rejection notices, so, taking a cue from some of my favorite authors, here’s my ongoing rejection counter!
