Chaos Reigns

As always, I have a lot going on! I’ve had a few wonderful acceptances recently, and there’s also a couple New Releases on the nearby horizon! My list of publications is growing at an exponential rate, and I couldn’t be happier, or more proud of my efforts. Find all the details within!

OK! Let’s start with my most recent acceptances, shall we?

Despite the odds, I managed to get a Full House of 5 drabbles accepted by Black Hare Press for book #6 of their Dark Drabbles series, “APOCALYPSE“! I was actually the 2nd author to achieve this.That’s a Full House in every title of the series so far! I’m on a roll! My tiny tales are: “Queen of the Ashes“, “The Dead Zone“, “Fresh Hell“, “The Last Rose” & “Citizens of the New World“.

Now this one is a BIG one, and is truly the one I’m most thrilled about… My 13.4k word novelette “The Talisman of Fire” was accepted by Dragon Soul Press for their “COFFINS & DRAGONS” anthology!!! At this point in time, this is the crux of my achievement as an author, in my opinion. I wanted in on this anthology so desperately! And I achieved my dream! I feature along side 20 other talented authors in what promises to be a Best Seller! I mean… just look at the cover! The featured draconic emblem features within my tale!
