Short public service announcement: because it’s the month of May, and because this is my birthday month, you can get The Devourer Below, the lovecraftian horror collection which includes my short story All my friends are monsters, with a massive 60% discount on DriveThruFiction.
I’m currently editing a new short story that should come out by the end of the year in a new anthology. And I am waiting for an answer by a publisher about a pitch for a novel that I have submitted. And there are two more stories I plan to write and mai – the deadline being September.
But in the meantime, because life is too easy as it is, I have joined the StoryaDayMay adventure. I did the challenge last year, and one of the stories I wrote not only sold nicely, but it was also longlisted for an award. And really, what I need is a little fun – I have been writing with very specific targets for so long, this runs the risk of becoming a job.
And I guess my long-suffering Patrons will benefit from a sudden burst of short fiction shenanigans on my part.
As the guy said… stay tuned.
My new novel, The Raiders of Bloodwood, will hit the shelves in July, but in the meantime, if you are subscribed to Netgalley (it’s free), you can read an advance copy of my book, free of charge. An honest review would be welcome.
What could ever go wrong, right?
The fine people at Aconyte Books have just announced their next Arkham Horror anthology, Secrets in Scarlet…
A secret organization ruthlessly seeks power over supernatural terrors in this globe-trotting anthology of arcane mystery and adventure, from the bestselling world of Arkham Horror
… and there’s a story of mine in it!
At the moment I am not at liberty to divulge any further detail, but it will be here for Halloween, and it’s going to be… interesting.
I had mentioned this already in the past, but today I got an update, and so you get an update too.
The two volumes of the Unbreakable Ink anthology, edited by Shebat Legion, and featuring two stories of mine, will be part of the Lunar Codex project.
The purpose of the project is to create three time capsules on the surface of the moon, containing a selection of creative works from our home world.
As an arts and culture project, The Lunar Codex has been called the most expansive, international, and diverse collection of contemporary culture launched to the Moon. Significantly, it is the first project to launch the works of women artists to the lunar surface. It is also the first project, to our knowledge, to place film and music on the Moon.
A long time reader (and sometimes writer) of science fiction, this is an old dream that comes true – from the time I spent my Sunday evenings watching Space 1999 on a small Zenith black and white TV. Granted, 1999 is long gone, and it will only be two stories of mine that get on the dusty surface of the moon, but what the heck, they will be there, and I will be too, and forever.
So, should you happen to be around the Lunar South Pole in the future, you’ll be able to check my stories, and every other story in the anthologies collection.
Or you can go on Amazon, and buy them here on Earth.
And now, a little music…
I was browsing an online store today, just to see how I could spend a coupon I received, and I stumbled on my next novel, currently available for pre-order.
It was both surprising and a bit disquieting.
Apparently it’s really gonna happen…
What can I say?
There’s a new anthology out today, and it’s called Unbreakable Ink 2, being the second volume in the series of anthologies edited by the always excellent Shebat Legion.
And it features a story of mine, called Out of the closet, about a girl, the monster under her bed, and the ghost in her closet.
Check it out.
