Goings On

The last volume of Bards and Sages’ Tome series is out! This one includes my short story “The Sorcerer,” which is a fantasy-ish story based on the Sorcerer of Trois Freres cave painting. The story is set in the same stone age setting as “The Might of a Shaman.”

On to some other news.

This month I will have several stories going live on various sites. Two are already available on Flash Fiction Magazine, Antipodean SF, and Astounding Outpost. Others will appear on Roane Publishing’s Flash Fiction Fridays, Akashic Books’ new Sci-Fi-Fri flash series, and Eternal Remedy. I also have audio stories pending with The Centropic Oracle and Tall Tale TV, but the dates are not set.

On another note, I am currently working with a cover artist on some art for my soon to be released Adventures of Iric collection. I think the cover is turning out nice and I hope to have the ebook released by the end of the month. I will likely look into print-on-demand shortly after.

And some old news I’m still bragging about.

I got the results of my most recent Writers of the Future Contest story submission. While I did not win, I did earn an Honorable Mention! From what I can tell, that’s somewhere around the top 10%. For one of the biggest writing competitions in sci-fi, that’s huge! Plus they are sending me a certificate. I will post a photo of it once it arrives. The announcement page with my name at the bottom can be found HERE.

This month is proving to be huge for me. Hope all is well with the rest of you!
