Month of Letters

Hello friends! I’m doing a challenge in the month of February to mail an item every day the mail goes out. This made me realize I do not have nearly enough people whose addresses I know to fulfill this solemn responsibility. If you have a mailbox and you would like me to send some sort of paper product to you: please fill out this form. I promise not to use these addresses for anything more nefarious than sending mail which hopefully will make you smile. And who knows, you might even get mail from some exotic location (like Wisconsin!) along my route as I drive across the country at...

Welcome to Purgatory!

Hello my friends, and welcome to purgatory! I’ll be your guide, if you’ll just follow me… I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’d sold a story as part of a Paranormal series called Purgatory, Inc, and I’m super excited to announce that the first of those books is out today! These are Paranormal Erotic Romances, so if you’re not into that please duck out now with my fondest wishes. Still here? Okay, here we go! The Purgatory, Inc stories are a collection of paranormal tales featuring heroes that don’t fit the traditional mold and an assortment of...

Merry Merry!

Two days before Christmas I got one of my short stories back from the eighth market I had sent it to. It wasn’t a surprise. The story is a little weird, and funny only on the darkest way, and to add more difficulty it was a holiday-themed fantasy story. Since holiday stories have such a short shelf life (I mean who really wants to read a Santa story in January?) I started to wonder if I should just table the story for a few months before sending it around again. In the end, the story is just too quirky and strange to easily find a home so I decided to make it a Christmas present for...

News, I Have News!

Posted by on Nov 12, 2014 | 7 comments

I have some very exciting news to share with everyone! In the last week I’ve found out about two stories I’ve sold that I’m clear to announce. First, I sold a short story titled “The Sorceress Who Had No Heart” to Vitality Magazine. Vitality is a brand-spanking new magazine that just successfully completed their Kickstarter campaign. Sorceress will be in their very first issue and will also be illustrated! I can’t share the sneak-peek I’ve gotten at the preliminary sketches, but I think the artwork will be amazing. I’m so very excited to be a...
