Storm Witch – Out Today

IIIf you’re looking for a short Grimdark read on your lunch break, commute to work, or even if the grim darkness helps you sleep at night, Storm Witch is out today. It’s the second tale in my ongoing series The Exiled Crown. It can be read independently from Forsaken, but some of the elements from the second story are present in that first tale. Storm Witch is about Ayla and her companion Brim taking a contract to kill a witch who has cursed a city with winter in the midst of summer and rescue a princess to get paid some much-needed gold. It’s double the length of Forsaken, around 4,000 words. I hope you’ll check it out and, as always, if you’d like a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review on Goodreads, feel free to contact me. Have a grim and dark day!

Forsaken (The Exiled Crown #1)

the-1If you’re a fan of short fiction, be it fantasy short stories or episodic fiction, I am excited to say that my new story Forsaken is available today on Amazon. Forsaken is the first tale in The Exiled Crown series, a short fiction series I have several future stories planned for. I hope you’ll give Forsaken a try and I look forward to seeing how this format is recieved. Forsaken comes in at just over 2,100 words and it’s my first attempt at selling my short fiction independantly rather than through the usual short fiction venues. Forsaken is available at the following links:

Publishing Update

I have a few publishing announcements to share:

  • My science fiction short story Starlight will appear in Digital Fiction Pub‘s forthcoming QuickFic Anthology #3. This story will also be reprinted in Szortal, a Polish speculative fiction magazine.
  • I have sold a science fiction flash story called The Shadows of Self to the British science fiction and fantasy magazine The Singularity . The story will appear in the forthcoming 5th issue. I discovered this magazine through one of their issues. The issue had a few top tier short fiction authors and some really great stories in their magazine. I am honored to be a part of it.
  • My science fiction flash story called Breakfast Alone will appear in the new speculative fiction quarterly magazine Empyreome. I was excited to discover this magazine on Kickstarter, and I like the vision the editor portrays. I’m interested to see this magazine grow. The story will appear in the magazine’s weekly flash series.

Overall, I am very pleased with where these stories have landed. I will continue to update the Bibliography page with current links and publication info if you want to give any of the stories a read.

I have a few more stories already written and I am working on refining them. I can feel my writing improve with each and every story and I’m excited to see where the next stories will find a home.

Thank you for keeping up with my efforts.
