Writing Stuff

It’s been a busy week:

The Eastern Factor is off to the editors, and I just finished with the re-edit of The Order of the Wolf and it is now live on Amazon.  You can also get a free copy if you sign up for my brandy new Author Newsletter.  I will be sending it out monthly to begin with, at least until my next book is released in January.  After that, we’ll see, but it’ll be quarterly at a minimum.

I also just found out that I won the Charlotte Geeks flash fiction contest with my story “Geekzilla Saves the Gala”.  It was featured on their Guardians of the Geekery podcast.  I also received some cool prizes.  You can find the podcast here (the story starts at 07:30).

Finally!

I finally finished the last revision of The Eastern Factor.  Maybe I should call it the latest revision.  This is the one where I made much-needed cuts based upon feedback from readers.  It is the last revision before going to the editor.  Which means it isn’t really the last revision.  Wow, I talked myself down from that exciting moment way too quickly.  Let me try that again.

Last revision!  Last revision!  Last revision!  For Now.  (No, I am not dancing around, but I did spin my chair around a couple of times.)

Wow, that felt better. (Still a little dizzy though.)

I’m talking to the editor and will have a bit of a break before it comes back to me.  This gives me some time to work on something else.  I’m looking forward to writing something new for a change.  I actually have a couple of short story ideas that I want to pursue.

Speaking of short stories, my story Granny May Saves the Day will be coming out soon in Issue 4 of Broadswords and Blasters.  Look for it in January.

An Early Christmas Present – For Me

My short story “Santa Doesn’t Work Here Anymorewill be coming your way this Christmas.  It will be appearing in the anthology Short and Twisted Christmas Tales sponsored by the North Texas Speculative Fiction Workshop.

This story has been sitting in my pile waiting for the right venue.  It feels good to get it out there.    I understand the anthology will be released in November.
