Just wanted to let you all know that I’m running a sale on Otherworlders. You can pick up a copy on Amazon for .99 for a limited time. If you haven’t read it yet, now’s a good time to buy it.
(That’s a microphone. Kind of a bad pic)
I just wanted to pop on and apologize for the lack of Flash Fiction today. I had my first radio/podcast interview today. It was a lot of fun, but it took up a chunk of the day. And (I’m assuming due to my social anxiety) left me completely spent. I went home after and slept for the rest of the day.
Rather than give you a half-hearted flash fiction story, I figured it was better to wait a day. So look fora belated FFF tomorrow. And I’ll give you details as to where and when you can listen to the interview once I know.
The book release for Otherworlders went great. The party was fun and had a wonderful turnout.
And best of all, here is Otherworlders current standings on Amazon (1/19 at 2am)
Hot New Release List:
#39 in Dystopian
I think I should be around #55 in Scifi Adventure, but I guess I need to straighten out my keywords to show up there.
#14951 overall rank in Paid Kindle.
There will be games and terrific GIVEAWAYS!

I hope that you all had a great holiday. So far, mine has been pretty uneventful. The fella had to work today, and we both worked yesterday. But that’s life sometimes. We had a really nice dinner out last week, and on Black Friday we bought ourselves a Wii U for a gift to ourselves.
I got my proof copy of Otherworlders on Christmas Eve. Merry Xmas to me 🙂 Here’s what it looked like. There might be an unboxing video some day, but I’ve discovered that I don’t really like vlogging that much.
The ARC reviews are beginning to come in, and they look good. I’ve had a few people tell me that I should make a second book in this universe, as well. 🙂 Check them out. I also have a Goodreads Giveaway going on. You can enter to win a signed, physical copy.
Hope you all have great holidays!
Just found out that I received my second Honorable Mention with the Writers of the Future Contest for the short story adaptation of my planned series Skyland.
I’m glad I got an HM, but I’m a little disappointed. Which might sound bad, but let me explain. My first HM was for a story that I thought was decent, but Skyland was truly the best thing I’ve ever written. It was leaps and bounds beyond my first HM story. Which is why I expected it to do better. And now, I have to figure out what to do with it. I might submit to some literary magazines and see what happens. I could self-publish it as is. I might see if I can expand it into a full novel. I’m not feeling the serial aspect anymore. When I changed it to be a complete story, it made me realize that the other story wasn’t necessarily needed. So, who knows what in the world I’ll do with WindChasers (the planned 2nd book when it was going to be a serial). I struggled a lot to write that, but I did write enough words that it feels odd to just throw it away. But it ties in heavily with Skyland, so, it’s stand alone, and has a complete arch, but has an open arc, too. Hmm…
I don’t know if I’ll enter the Writers of the Future Contest again. I’ve got a lot of projects at the moment (2 short stories are for actual publication, sort of! It’s this whole thing that I’ll explain when it’s closer to release. I want to have the contracts all good and signed first 🙂 ) And, if any of my submissions do well, then I won’t be “amateur” anymore, and I won’t qualify for the contest. That would be a pretty great disqualification.
So, we’ll see what happens. For now, just trying to be happy with my Honorable Mention.
