News! (x2)

Apparently good things comes in pairs, which is not the same as coming in pears, because that would be awfully soggy and could adversely affect a thing’s ability to be considered “good.”

I have two bits of news today, the first of which is that Dennis Miller (no, not that Dennis Miller) over at Smoke and Mirrors (yes, that Smoke and Mirrors) read my story “No Silver Lining” in Unidentified Funny Objects and decided he’d like to use his alchemical powers to transmute it into a podcast.  In case you’re unfamiliar, the Smoke and Mirrors podcasts sound like wonderful old-timey radio shows, which is very exciting because I’ve never been a part of an old-timey radio show before, wonderful or otherwise.

News the Second:  I recently sold a story called “The Miracle Man” to ThunderDome Press’s Bloody Knuckles anthology.  As the name suggests, Bloody Knuckles is a collection of romantic vampire stories and fondue recipes set in 1920s Illinois.  Except that it’s actually a collection of Mixed Martial Arts tales, which has me very excited.

As always, I’ll be sure to post again when these stories are available to the public, pending FDA approval.

The Story So Far

The main reason I created this site was to keep people updated when I sell stories. Unfortunately, I haven’t sold anything since registering this domain, so I have no news to report right now. Still, I decided I should post something, because my front page needed a placeholder until the next big announcement.

So here’s a picture of a cheetah chewing on a stick.

Coming Soon . . .

Yes, this page is mostly empty.  And yes, it looks like every other WordPress site.  But never fear!  I happen to know a very talented web designer, and he’s graciously volunteered to work around the clock on projects that are completely unrelated to this one.

Before long, though, I should have a nice, fancy site for your viewing pleasure.  Hopefully you’ll see some big changes around here by mid-October.  And hopefully that October will be the one occurring in 2012.

Check back soon!

UPDATE (10/17/2012):  If you’ve somehow managed to find your way here (probably from my link at the Lovecraft Ezine), I know the website still isn’t really functional yet, but the least I can do is provide you with links to my currently published stories:
