The Fell Beasts Anthology from Dark Quest Books went to the printers yesterday, which contains my story Whispers in the Cage, and should be available for purchase within a week. Check back soon for the latest updates, and to learn where you can get your frightening copy!
Also, I’m happy to announce that I have finished writing my latest novel, Utopia–Burning, a thrilling sci-fi adventure in which perfection is just an iterative process, and peace comes with a price! The rewrites and revisions will begin after a nice month or so break; meanwhile, I will work on my next novel/novella idea, and also write a couple short stories that have been patiently waiting for their turn. Check back often for the latest news, updates, and possible prizes!
And for those of you out there thinking about starting your own novel, but are intimidated by how long it will take and how much writing is involved, just remember to take it one page at a time! If you write just one page per day (the average page in a book has 250 words, btw), in a year or less you will have a finished book! I finished the story for Utopia–Burning in about 5-6 months, writing around 750 words per day, 4-5 days per week. Of course, I took short breaks here and there to write short stories along the way, which I found very beneficial. Short stories not only broke up the pace a little, but also replenished the creative juices when I switched back to the novel. So dust off that computer, turn off the TV and cell phone, and put fingers to keys. Your next novel is waiting!
